    Mt. Gilead Elementary STEM Lab Teacher

    Montgomery County Schools



     Experiment. Fail. Learn. Repeat.


    As a STEM teacher, my goal is to foster curiosity, stimulate inquisitiveness, and encourage lifelong learning. Students will apply real-world knowledge and learn to believe in their abilities. With these skills in their toolbox, students will be equipped to be 21st century problem-solvers in life and in their careers.


    STEM Lab Mission

    Mt. Gilead Elementary will foster student growth through its STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) class offered during the school day to all grade levels. Students will learn through Problem Based Learning labs, experiments, and activities, which allow practical application and real-world experience to be cultivated in a collaborative setting.
