Fast forward to the present, and I can honestly say today was an amazing! We welcomed the Governor, Lt. Governor, and a State Representative into our building to share our S.T.E.M. journey and vision for the future. In addition to my principal sharing our school's story, I had the opportunity to share why I believe S.T.E.M. needs to be included in our instruction. We also gave the Governor, Lt. Governor, and State Representative a tour of the building, and while visiting classrooms, they interacted with students participating in S.T.E.M. activities. The thirty minute visit flew by, but before leaving, the Lt. Governor shared with our students that they shouldn't let S.T.E.M. ideas and thinking end when they walk out the school doors, but that they should "take it home."
Now that the visit is over, I look forward to continuing to support teachers as they work to incorporate S.T.E.M. into their classrooms. I also plan to continue sharing lessons, including S.T.E.M. activities, that I model in classrooms. I am passionate about S.T.E.M., and after hearing how impressed the Governor and Lt. Governor were about my leadership and vision, I look forward to the future and the path my building and myself are on!
