Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. –Barack Obama
Good Afternoon STEM Educators,
YES WE CAN, YES WE CAN, YES WE CAN ! This was a phrase that galvanized our country and the world. The video above is when Barack Obama took second place in the New Hampshire Primary, January 8, 2008. It is so powerful, because if you actually listen to the whole speech, you would have thought , he actually won the primary. But no, he lost! Even though he lost, his confidence was never shaken, and in actuality it strengthen him.
As I relate that to Bluford STEM Academy, YES WE CAN, YES WE CAN! It is amazing to see how our STEM Educators are incorporating STEM in their classroom! It is AWESOME. We have Educators that are using interdisciplinary and student centered learning. We have teachers utilizing literacy with Science, and literacy with their Technology. Also Math with Literacy and Science with Math. We have STEM educators that truly use their technology in every block of the day. It is Amazing! Does that mean everything is perfect, No. But, we have STEM Educators, that try! The first thing in doing anything special is effort. We have some of the hardest working teachers in Guilford County Schools.
