As a licensed educator I have taught 4th-6th grades over the past eight years and I still love messy science experiments. I’m not surprised when my students show up in my classroom and say they don’t like Science, but leave my class stating that it is their favorite subject. Why does this happen? What am I doing differently? I have a passion for curriculum integration in the classroom. I completed my Masters project on integration because it is the scientific solution to the problem of not having enough hours in a given school day to teach the mandated core curriculum.
I have been fortunate enough to share my passion of integration with educators throughout the state. Now, I want to be able to reach children and give them the same passion and love of science that I have. I want to affect the lives of children not only in my classroom, but also throughout the state. Opening The STEM Shoppe is just the beginning of the possibilities. I know our STEM Shoppe team will change the lives of every child that walks through our doors.
