"Sacrifice, Sacrifice, Sacrifice"
"It always seems impossible until its done."Nelson Mandela
Being a STEM Educator, means sacrificing so much of your time and energy to making your lesson's interdisciplinary to incorporate STEM. Its not easy! Many of our Bluford STEM Educators utilize their iPads, Class Dojo, Epson Projectors ...etc., to make their lesson's creative, innovative and engaging. Also, Bluford STEM Educators sacrifice so much with our STEM Enrichment/ Groups and Activities . The long days and long nights are very much appreciated. Sacrifice is what builds champions and it goes along way. Yes, we are all champions, Champions that sacrifice so much to Bluford STEM Academy/ students! It might not show up on a test or data sheet but our sacrifice is what changes around a school, environment, students, ....etc.
Yes, You a Champion! A Champion that Sacrifices,Sacrifices, Sacrifices!

Shout OUT to Mr. Price Payton and Mrs. Cindy Donnell for presenting at the North Carolina Association Elementary Educators (NCAEE) Regional Conference. These STEM Educators presented on Integrating Math and Science. During their presentation, they focused on the importance of integrating math and science because students maybe stronger in one subject area and weaker in the other. If you combine them both, then students especially AA males students will be engaged, evolved, and encourage to succeed. Way to go Mr. Price Payton and Mrs. Cindy Donnell
Shout OUT to Ms. Brooks! Ms. Brooks is a retired teacher that has stepped in at Bluford STEM Academy wonderfully. Ms. Brooks has been tremendous at our school.
