It’s an Exciting Time: STEM in the Classroom

What an exciting time we live in. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are completely changing the world and, consequentially, how we navigate our lives. More narrowly scoped, these changes affect our education system and individual classrooms. I’m certain you have already experienced this first-hand.

My goal for this blog is not to tell you things you already know, but to inspire you to want to develop yourself as a professional STEM teacher. I hope to do this by not only exposing you to the most current, engaging, and hands-on teaching practices; new STEM tools and products; and relevant STEM news, but also, and most importantly, by being your mentor.

We are all in this together. I truly feel now is the time for us, as teachers, to embrace the changes coming our way in order to give our students the best education possible. It is my philosophy that the best way to learn something is to be consumed by it and to interact with it so we understand it in context of our own experiences and the experiences of those around us. This goes for not only our students, but also ourselves. Be on the lookout for professional development that will mean something to you and that you can easily implement in your classroom.

You’ll be hearing from me soon! Until then, check out my segment, STEM-ify It, where you’ll learn some new cooperative learning techniques to use in your classroom.
