My name is Dameon Blair and I am the Principal of STEM Academy 7-12. STEM is the newest edition to the Career Success family of schools and I am honored and excited to lead it. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and we prepare our students for fantastic careers in those fields. We have a beautiful new building with state of the art equipment. Our middle and high school is a hands-on, project-based learning model to support and re-engage some of our most disengaged learners. At STEM Academy, students not only learn about science, math, social studies and English language arts, they experience them through exploration, critical thinking, and the scientific process.

We are working to partner with our community to create amazing new opportunities for our students to learn about and experience STEM-related careers. We believe in our students and want to give them all the best opportunities to achieve their dreams. At STEM, we operate as teacher facilitators rather than lecturers. Some of the major activities that teacher facilitators are tasked with are:

  • Conducting learner orientation – to include explaining teacher expectations and ensuring the modules continue to be efficient and effective for student collaboration
  • Monitoring and evaluating student learning
  • Managing student activities
  • Managing and supplementing curriculum – including modifying curriculum pacing and supplementing curriculum as necessary.
  • Communicating information – to include facilitator-led discussions and feedback
  • Managing facilities and environment – ensuring that equipment and materials are available and functioning
  • Maintaining records and documenting student progress

Students also experience a shift to become lifelong learners. The responsibility of learning is paramount in this learner-centered environment. That responsibility falls to the learner who will be accountable to partners, responsible for communicating to facilitators on their own behalf, expected to check their ITC accounts to confirm grades are in the system, etc. To help students shift to learners, we support:

  • Collaboration – math and science modules allow students to work collaboratively, and identify and solve problems
  • Application – hands-on activities are integrated throughout each unit to support the learning concepts
  • Career exploration – throughout the module experience students are introduced to a number of careers that use the specific math or science content being learned. Students are encouraged to complete a career overview exercise to determine the necessary education needed to be successful, the basic salary ranges, etc.

Call or email me at (602) 687-8282 or dblair@cssschools.com to schedule a time to come for a tour of our campus and see all the amazing things that are happening at our school.
