About Miss Bender: I am a graduate student from Medaille College. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood/Childhood Education Birth-6th grade. I also have a Master's Degree in Literacy. This is my second year teaching at Immaculate Conception and I am eager to be apart of a wonderful school community.
Science and STREAM Curriculum:
PRINCIPLES of STREAM Education:
Community Partnership - Interdisciplinary: Connecting Subject Areas - PBL: Relevant or Real Life Application - Hands On/Building/Engineering - Technology Based
Grades K-4 will visit the science lab one day each week and experience hands on application in a particular area that coincides with the science curriculum in their classroom. I work with the primary teachers to align science lab with the work that is being done in the classroom during science time.
Every Friday afternoon we run a STREAM Academy in our building K-8th. Students are actively learning 21st Century Skills (The 4C's: Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, and Critical Thinking) to prepare them for a bright future.
