Spend an hour with innovative young educator Celina Bertoncini, ninth-grade STEAM teacher at BELA, the all-girls Brooklyn Academy for Emerging Leaders. Viewers of this recorded edWebinar will learn all about this school’s unique focus on preparing young women for college and career, and their integration of a technology-rich curriculum. Ms. Celina B., as her students call her, will share insights into BELA’s STEAM program, their curriculum’s focus, and the art activities and projects that open both avenues of artistic expression and mastery of technology skills for her students.

Viewers will have the opportunity to gather tips and ideas for integrative STEAM projects and learn how BELA works to address the unique and individual needs of students who may not have had access to technology tools prior to becoming BELA students. The school’s motto, “I believe. I can. I will,” is an everyday inspiration for students, teachers and now this edWebinar’s attendees.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school and district leaders of the elementary through high school levels.
