Our Founder

Shayla presenting at the Florida Engineering Education Conference at the University of Central Florida.

Shayla Mark, M.Ed.


An educator for over a decade, Shayla’s experience with and love of STEM education began early on. As a classroom teacher, she taught life, physical, and earth/space sciences to middle school students. She later taught engineering and served as the Founding STEM Academy Coordinator at a Central Florida middle school.

Noticing the need for developing girls’ confidence in science, Shayla created an after-school STEM club for girls which later became STEMchicks, Inc., a nonprofit organization aimed at empowering girls to succeed in STEM. As the Founder/Director of STEMchicks, Shayla provided STEM workshops to students, professional development to Central Florida educators, and participated in several speaking engagements.

As students progress through their academic careers, STEM subjects like science and math often become more challenging.  Shayla founded STEMpossible Tutors in effort to make STEM “less scary”, giving students the confidence and tools they need to succeed.  Each student receives individualized instruction tailored to their learning style while acquiring strategies and skills to help them be successful.  We’re on a mission to make success in STEM possible today, so our students can be the leaders of tomorrow.

A devoted wife and dedicated mother to four amazing daughters, Shayla holds a Bachelor’s degree from Florida State University (Go ‘Noles!) and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from the University of West Florida.
