West Fannin educators attended the STEM Forum in Athens, GA on October 23rd and 24th. Ten members of our staff joined together with hundreds of other educators to share and learn how other schools and teachers implement STEM/STEAM.
We are very proud of Mrs. Karen Goode, Mrs. Kim Patterson, and Mrs. Mary Jean Pace for being chosen to present at the conference. Their presentation was specific to our fourth grade students at West Fannin. Teachers integrate science and math standards to create hands on, authentic learning. Our fourth grade students use these skills in STEM projects, such as the nature trail, Adopt A Stream, the greenhouse, and organic poultry. They did a phenomenal job presenting about West Fannin’s 4th grade STEM initiatives.
