My name is Stephanie Deskin and I am the DREAMS Lab teacher here at Canyon Ranch Elementary.
This is my 10th year of teaching, and my fourth year in Coppell ISD. For the previous three years, I was a fifth grade designer at Richard J. Elementary in the Green House. I am beyond excited for this inaugural year here at CRE! It’s going to be a wonderful school year full of learning experiences and building relationships with our coyotes. I will see each K-5 homeroom class on a six-day rotation for 50 minutes.
I’m excited to share you more about our DREAMS Lab and our vision for deeper learning. The DREAMS Lab is based on the Maker(space) Movement united with STE(A)M education. The DREAMS Lab is an interdisciplinary approach to learning integrating the subjects below into a cohesive learning model based on world experiences, challenges, and application of knowledge :
D - Design | R - Research | E - Engineering | A - Arts | M - Mathematics | S - Science
Design challenges are engaging, and they encourage learners to think critically, and problem solve individually and in small groups. We will use a variety of hands-on investigations and challenges when your child comes to the DREAMS Lab. I could not be any more excited to help facilitate the DREAMS of our coyotes!
Our DREAMS Lab will require an abundance of consumable materials. On my teacher webpage, you will find a list of ways you can help us. Many of the items we need you may already have at home. All donations can be taken to the office. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can stay up to date with what is happening in the DREAMS Lab is by following me on Twitter @DREAMSDeskin. If you can offer any help with donations or sharing your talents, please let me know!
