STEM education is necessary in all grades in all schools in order to remain competitive in this now global society.

The first challenge for teachers is to attract our students toward STEM education, and the second is to keep them interested.
Why is STEM important?
Why is technology important?
In an economy where 90 percent of the fastest growing jobs may not require a bachelor’s degree but will require at least some post-secondary training, students, teachers and business leaders must recognize CTE grows workforce skills demanded by jobs in 21st century industries.

~June St. Clair Atkinson, Ed.D., State Superintendent
The future of America's 21st century economy
…Yet there is “a significant technology
paradox,” according to Edward E. Gordon, author
of Winning the Global Talent Showdown: “While
overall younger workers are ‘tech junkies,’ they
lack the talent qualifications or even interest in
careers centered on designing, making, repairing
or applying and managing many 21st-century
technologies” (Gordon, 2009).

To that end, educational decision-makers must acknowledge that the academics of yesterday are not sufficient for today. Today’s students must learn content within the context of 21st Century skills.

Standard 5: Teachers reflect on their practice
“Practice without reflection is not practice at all.”

Reflection is one way to dialogue with yourself about a learning experience.  The purpose of this short reflection is to help establish what you have learned while studying and applying the strategies that were presented.
In conclusion…
If you continue thinking what you’ve always thought, and continue teaching what you’ve always taught, and continue testing like you’ve always tested, you’ll continue getting what you’ve always gotten.
~Author unknown
~Lewis (The Value of Self-Education)
Times change, perspectives change, and you must change in order to adapt and remain relevant in the ever-changing world of education.
