CITGO Fueling Education winner Pflugerville Texas Wieland Elementary School with Steve Spangler

Fun Day of STEM Professional Development with CITGO Fueling Education Winner – Susan VanDeWater

Wieland Elementary School in Pflugerville, TX

October 13, 2018

Once again, we are excited and honored to be asked to partner with CITGO’s Fueling Education program as they support professional development with our STEM teacher training workshops and summer science institutes.
This year, grand prize workshops have been awarded to three teachers who demonstrated impact and influence both in the classroom and as a science leader in their school. Today,Steve traveled to Pflugerville, Texas with our workshop team (Carly Reed and Bryan Higgins) to personally congratulate Susan VanDeWater from Wieland Elementary School. Teachers from elementary and middle schools throughout the district joined us for a full-day STEM Boot Camp to explore best engagement strategies and presentation techniques to make teaching science more fun and effective in the classroom.
“Science has never been my strength, but all that changed after our STEM experience with the Spangler team,” said Susan VanDeWater who entered the Fueling Education sweepstakes on Facebook. “Steve shared classroom strategies for how to engage my students on their level, to make it an experience, a memory, and not a worksheet. Thanks to CITGO for making this opportunity possible.”
Learn how you can bring this fun, Professional Development STEM Boot Camp to your school by visiting our website or contacting Carly Reed at 855.228.8780. Visit CITGO’s Fueling Education page for details on next year’s program.
