A Principal's Perspective
This powerful video was recently shared with me. Please take the time to watch. STEM Girls https://www.popsugar.com/tech/Microsoft-Girls-STEM-Video-2017-43279050
This video got me thinking about how each of us can defy the odds and prepare all of our students to change the world. In math and science? Yes! How do you defy the odds in your classroom through your lessons, conversations, questions, etc. each day?
Be Innovative - Design the possibilities!
