I Teach Because...

Think back to when you were a student, back-to-school shopping, finding your classroom, and the exciting lessons that would soon fill your day. The first day of school jitters that were calmed by the friendly, welcoming face, and celebrating the “ah ha” moments when you finally figured out how to solve the problem. Then there was the time in kindergarten, when you went to the restroom but couldn’t remember the way back to your classroom. As panic set in, that friendly face walked around the corner and they knew exactly where your classroom was.

Astronaut visits Erie students with Space Foundation program

Two years ago, after becoming a teacher liaison for The Space Foundation, Kristina Stem vowed to bring an astronaut to Erie Elementary School — and this week she delivered.

Former astronaut Leroy Chiao wowed Erie Elementary students Wednesday with anecdotes about eating and showering at the International Space Station.

Chiao has been to space four times during his career, including a six-month stint as commander of the Space Station.

Engineering and Dadisms - the E in STEM isn't as silent as you thought!

It's National Engineering Week.  As the STEM Coordinator at Erie Elementary, I wanted to highlight different aspect of the Engineering Process in an effort to show how engineering is not just building.  It is a part of our teachers' everyday skill set.  All of us engineer more than we realize!
