Welcome to STEM Exploration!
My name is Kelly Johnson, and I am incredibly excited to be your STEM Exploration Teacher! I am National Board Certified teacher and have been teaching for 13 years at Hadley Junior High School. I could not be happier to be in this incredible building!
STEM Exploration classes are designed to help students explore hands-on, interest-driven challenges inspired by real-world science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics while fostering the development of important 21st century skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking and problem solving. Students will have a chance to experience the engineering design cycle as we master the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards. Sixth graders focus on basic engineering challenges. Seventh graders focus on Lego robotics. Eighth graders focus on advanced engineering challenges.
In my personal life, I am married to a wonderful man named Joe Johnson, and we are lucky enough to have four amazing children: Cheyanne, Nick, Jeremy and Sydney! I originally worked as a computer consultant for 6 years before making the switch to education. I will bring a lot of what I learned from industry into my classroom.
Please feel free to reach out any time! My classroom is always open.
I am very excited to work together this year!
