Stepping into a K through five STEM role is equally exciting and overwhelming. If you were a classroom teacher before, like I was, you were thrown into a whole bunch of new teacher responsibilities. Without systems and boundaries, you can quickly drown in everything you have to do, and you might not get anything done. In this episode, I will share with you three STEM teacher boundaries that you need to start now so that you can be productive and not overwhelmed.

February is one of my favorite months, and that is because my birthday happens to be on Valentine’s Day! I’m sure you know by now that I love a good theme. In today’s episode, I share five February STEM activities you can use in your classroom. These are lessons that I have done with my students over the years, and they have absolutely loved them, so I know that your students will too. All of these STEM activities for February that I share can be done as one-day challenges, or you can spread them out over time.
