I have been teaching in Lynchburg City for 10 years. I have taught 2nd grade at Linkhorne Elementary School for the last 10 years and am moving to 1st grade this coming year. I love incorporating STEM into my classroom whenever I can. I did not always feel this way--I was very nervous about incorporating STEM into my class 5 years ago. A colleague encouraged and helped me incorporate STEM into my class and it wasn't an easy process but I learned to let go of some control and give my kids the space to experiment and try things with a STEM focus.
This summer I was privileged to attend the Get Your Teach On National Conference and I am so excited to incorporate more engaging strategies into my classrooms this year!
