Teachers of TN: Carlos Calderon

“When they come to my class, they see magic. They see that we have an opportunity to be a part of something that will happen in the future. They see career opportunities. Learning to solve problems—and think critically—is one of the important parts of teaching STEAM. The students benefit from the inclusion of arts in our hands-on projects. They feel proud; they feel creative. These are experiences and skills they can carry over to their lives and future projects.”
