My name is Teresa Fields, and I am very excited to be the STEM Coordinator, for Hoffman-Boston Elementary. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to teach in various settings in Arlington County Public schools. I believe, through STEM education, we can prepare the students for their future. The STEM initiative at the elementary school level, is essential for building the 21st century skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. Part of my goal this year, will be to incorporate project based learning into the STEM curriculum. This will allow the students to solve real world problems, that are meaningful and challenging.
To see what we are doing in the classroom and around the school, I invite you to follow me on Twitter @HFBSTEM
