Teachers of TN: Jermaine Bowe

“STEM is life—it’s problem solving for life. It’s important for kids to learn to problem solve. If you want to be successful in life, learn how to solve problems. Don’t whine, don’t give up, don’t buckle—solve the problem. My goal at the middle school level is to have a controlled environment where they can fail, and I literally mean I want them failing. Because the more they fail, they correct their mistakes. Before you know it, they have mastered something, and when they look back, it’s—wow!”
