I found out this week that Ms. Lebiszczak, Ms. Fishley, and myself received a grant from the Prairie Spirit Schools Foundation to infuse our classrooms with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). I am thrilled. I decided to document my STEAM journey for a few reasons: I want to remember where I found resources, I want to have an online place to collect and store ideas for projects, and I want to remember what I did this year STEAM-wise with students. In my mind, a blog is an easy and accessible way to help share my experiences and learnings with others.
