STEM-Tastic!

I am so delighted to serve the STEM program at JWP Elementary. For those of you who are asking, "What's STEM?" it stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We'll be doing amazing things like learning basic computer programming logic, playing with robots, engineering challenges, and lots of hands-on activities! 

I would love to share our learning with you. Here are a few ways to connect with us: 
  • Email me directly! My email address is at the bottom of this page.
  • Follow us on Twitter! Our Twitter handle is @jwpstem. Check out the tweets at the bottom of this page. Check out my personal education Twitter account at @RPiersonEdu.

A little about me: I grew up in the Willmar area, and I graduated from Martin Luther College (New Ulm) in 2005, with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, Secondary Education, and Life Science. Upon graduation, I worked for 10 years at a Lutheran school in Wisconsin. (Do you know how difficult it is to remain a Vikings fan in Wisconsin?) I have completed my credit work for a Masters in Educational Design and Technology through Concordia University - Wisconsin (Mequon, WI) and am working to finish my thesis/graduate project. My husband and I are currently living in Eagle Lake with our two cats.
