My NSTA / Peers / Susanne Hokkanen

I am STEAM teacher for a public middle school, where I enjoy bringing hands-on applied learning to my students through problem-solving, project based activities. I am highly motivated and very dedicated to finding ways to implement minds-on hands-on science/STEM instruction that encourages student interest in science and engineering and helps students retain content information and develop new skills. I completed a Masters program in science education through Montana State University in 2011. My thesis was an action research project to evaluate the impact of teaching all lessons/unit plans using the 5E learning cycle on student interest and academic achievement. I continue to use the 5E Learning Cycle in all lesson planning and presentations. I also completed a Masters program in teacher leadership through Concordia University in 2015, so I can also assist other teachers and teachers in training for the betterment of student learning and discovery.
