Recently, Ms. Sharon (4th/5th grade CLC Academy teacher) has been taking her class to the library in downtown Clearwater. Last week they got a “behind the scenes” tour of the library and they also discovered the library’s STEM projects. (STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.)
Today the class went and here is a Success Story that Sharon got from the Head Librarian of the Children’s Library.
“Our experience with CLC Academy has been extremely positive. Thestudents are actually engaged in our STEM based Discovery Studio under the guidance of the most patient and skillful teacher. She is attentive, watchful and ignites the curiosity of her students. It is exciting for us as librarians to observe youth learning all that their library has to offer.
One student, who has checked out three books on each occasion of visiting the library, brought his parent today so that he could get a full access library card.
Further, the teacher of this class took her students to our book sale and purchased a book for each student. She has previously purchased café cookies providing excellent practice for our special needs student who staff our café. I thank her for her generosity and support of our library.”
