This month’s Hometown Heroes are STEM teachers 12 Jul 18

This month’s KNUJ Hometown Heroes are STEM teachers at Lakeside and Lincoln Elementary Schools in the Glencoe Silver Lake School District. Earlier this year the elementary schools and their STEM teachers, Scott Picha at Lakeside Elementary and Heather Pierce at Lincoln Elementary were recognized as a Project Lead the Way Distinguished School for providing access to transformative learning opportunities for students in the STEM and Career Learning program. Only 97 elementary schools across the nation received this honor. Project Lead the Way students engage in critical and creative thinking, build teamwork skills and develop a passion in STEM projects. Congratulations to this month’s Hometown Heroes, Glencoe Silver Lake Teachers Scott Picha and Heather Pierce.
