Why is STEM important to you?

Science is how I understand the world around me, and how I deepen my appreciation of the beauty in it. As a parent and as a person of color, it is clear to me the importance of STEM teachers in fostering a sense of belonging for all students in STEM classrooms, especially the most marginalized students. I feel privileged to be able to support efforts toward ending the STEM teacher shortage.
