Hello, My name is Mrs. Paula Rachael. I have worked at YSCP since 2012 in various roles (5th grade teacher, Character Education teacher, PBIS coach, SAP co-chair). I am certified in elementary education (k-6th grade) and special education (preK - 8th grade) and also have an additional master of education in differentiation. I have 3 kids of my own ages 22, 20, and 17. My oldest daughter is a social worker at UPMC, my middle daughter is in her 3rd year of Architecture school at PSU, and my son is a junior at Bellwood-Antis. In my “free” time I like to spend time with my family & pets. I also like kayaking & making things. The STEAM club will offer students a chance to challenge themselves in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Many of our projects will be made from recycled or low cost materials. Students will work both independently and collaboratively depending on the project we are working on. A few of the projects I am thinking of may include building a robot, screen free -coding a bracelet, building a bridge, or on some days we will see what they can create with the materials at hand.
