Mrs. Rachel Van Hazinga
STEaM= Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math
For the last two decades, I have developed new and innovative programming integrating science, art, math, and technology for both in-school and out-of-school learning environments, offering people a chance to connect their own learning in a deeply personal way. Deal has embraced STEaM and with it the vision of a school with a fluid cross-curricular integration of technology in all subject areas, especially mathematics, arts, engineering, and science.
In the Navigators Program we explore together what it means to become self-directed learners, who can identify their interests and strengths, follow their passions, and seek out ways to build leadership and become the changemakers of tomorrow. It is a privilege to abide with them on this journey.
