Chris Toy & Monte Selby
STEAM Workshop

October 24, 2017

Southern NH University, Manchester, NH

Attend this collaborative and engaging workshop with a team of 4 or 5 people from your school to be guided through a process that will model how to develop a “great” STEAM unit that incorporates all the essential elements. The model will demonstrate ways to incorporate “soft skills” (hands on, minds on, collaborative problem solving, growth mind set, creativity flexibility and perseverance), as well as “hard skills” (content, standards and proficiencies). Chris and Monte will share with you ways to replicate this process to develop future STEAM units at your school.

Presenter Bios

Chris Toy served as a middle school principal and teaches graduate courses in middle level leadership, curriculum, and school law. He has collaborated with colleagues, middle schools, organizations and universities in North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Chris’ interactive workshop style reflects his strong belief that educators must "Walk the Talk" and model what they want to see from students, faculties, and colleagues. Chris is a recipient of the NELMS Garvin Award, and the MAMLE Brazee Award.

When he isn’t engaged in middle level education Chris can be found teaching Asian fusion cooking around the State of Maine and on YouTube.
He is very excited about collaborating with Monte Selby!
