Hi, I'm Kristen Beck and I have been an educator for 23 years.  I have taught grades 3 - 8.  My curricular areas of expertise are Math, Science, Literacy, and Writing.  I am a Fellow for both the CWP (California Writing Project) and CMP (California Math Project). I have always worked to ensure my students are critical thinkers, persevering problem solvers and writers.  A few years back I began learning about integrating technology to enhance my math, science and writing instruction.  This site will illustrate the journey I have embarked on as I work to become a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) educator.
