Welcome to STEAM at Arrowwood Elementary

What is STEAM?
STEAM= Science + Technology + Engineering+ Arts + Math
Here at AWE, we add the ARTS to the better known idea of STEM because we understand and value the arts as a critical part of the learning process.
STEAM is located in the main hallway.

I have been with DCSD since 2004. I started in the more traditional technology lab setting. In 2012 I started one of the first hands on programs in the elementary schools. I am excited to bring this program to Arrowwood Elementary.
I grew up right outside of Washington, DC. My husband George and I have been married since 1991. We moved to Portland, OR in 2000 and then to Colorado in 2004.
