Relationships! Relationships!

"The world of mathematics opens up a world that you would have never imagined when you take advantage of the possibilities it opens to you whether it be seeing the beauty in things or opening up more lifelong opportunities "

So much of teaching our Bluford STEM students is building relationships with them. A lot of times our students just want to know that you care. I have seen some of our awesome STEM Educators go to a students football game in the past, dance recitals, lego competitions and so much more. It can be as simple as sitting and eat lunch with a student or asking how they are doing. Treat them as you would like someone to treat your niece, nephew or child.
