Hello and welcome to STEAM with Mrs. Teall! I will be teaching the Day 3 and Day 4 STEAM classes this year, and I look forward to partnering with you as your children grow in their curiosity and STEAM-related skills. This is a fun, fast-paced class that really mixes science instruction with the use of relevant technology and necessary engineering skills. Throughout our lessons, we do a lot of sketching and number work, which is where the “A” for art and “M” for math come into play in our name.
I live in Zeeland and am married to my husband, Nick, who is also a teacher. We have three sons ranging in age from 2 to 7 years old. I love to tell my students stories about my kids and relate my parenting experience to my teaching life. Truthfully, nothing made me a more empathetic teacher than becoming a parent!
The HPS Steam teachers have put together a website with useful links arranged by grade level. The students will be familiar with navigating this site and we encourage you to use it at home!

If you ever have questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the school phone number. Thank you so much for sharing your children with us here at Alward Elementary!
