Tara Koehler

STEAM Professional Development Specialist

I have been an educator for over 20 years. My vision as a professional development specialist is to inspire teachers to incorporate 21st-century skills into their STEAM practices. Students learn best by doing rather than being told, and learning is not one-size-fits-all. Students should be actively engaged in their learning. I work with teachers to create authentic learning experiences for their students that incorporate collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity. Although I am a teacher, I am a forever student. I am always looking to grow as an educator.
