Welcome to STEAM!
STEAM stands for: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math
I am very excited to connect with you online and am looking forward to this time together. Canvas is the online tool we will be using while we are learning together at a distance. That is where you will find important announcements, Zoom links, and current resources for my classes. Look for a course tile box on your students Canvas account called "STEM". We do project-based learning that supports students that are working to master standards in their own homeroom class. We use both Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as well as Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
After graduating from South Seattle Community College, I attended Western Washington University for their excellent Woodring College of Education for my Elementary Education degree. This is my third year as a specialist here at Penny Creek but it will be my 16th year teaching. Most of my career I have been either a kindergarten or 1st grade classroom teacher. I am so lucky to be here and I love being a part of this caring Penny Creek community!
Email is the best way for families to contact me. Students can contact me through Canvas. Please reach out if I can support you in any way!
