Welcome to STEM Forward for 6th Grade
Hello! I'm Ms. Manion and I am excited to begin my 7th year teacher at Stewartville Schools and even more excited to be teaching STEM full time! I have a Master’s degree from St. Mary’s University in Winona and have a Bachelor’s from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I live just outside of Stewartville with my husband, four kids, a dog, and a bunch of chickens.
My route to teaching has been different than most. I have worked in marketing, event-planning, politics, retail and agriculture. My hope is that I can use some of my personal and work experiences to help students overcome the complexities of STEM. My teaching philosophy stems from the idea that students learn best by being actively involved in the learning process. To help with this, I plan on providing lots of hands-on activities and multiple ways in which the class can experience all things STEM. I believe STEM should be both fun and relevant. Everyday I will help demonstrate how students can use what they learn from STEM in their daily lives. I promise to bring passion, compassion, and some more fun to the classroom! I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of you as we progress through the year!

What to expect?
Students can expect to be challenged to expand their math and science backgrounds while learning how to become better problem solvers, better seekers of information, and better prepared for life after high school!
I expect my student to come to class ready with the everything they need to be successful - including a pencil, notebook, computer, an open mind, and a willingness to try.
