About the STEAM Experience at
A.D. Stowell School - Hannibal, MO
10/5 - 4pm - Katie & Steven Schisler
Hear about the innovative arts integration scheduling model in place at A.D. Stowell school in Hannibal, MO from husband/wife team Katie (music) and Steven (visual arts) Schisler.
Stephen and Katie Schisler met at University of Central Missouri (at the time CMSU) where they graduated in 2000 Stephen with a Bachelor’s of Art Education* and Katie with a Bachelor’s of Music Education**. After marrying in 2003 they dreamed of teaching in the same building which became a reality in 2014 when Katie joined the staff of A. D. Stowell Elementary in Hannibal, Missouri where Stephen had been for ten years.
In 2018 they had the opportunity to help in the creation of a STEAM Integration program at Stowell. This would pair grade level teachers with specialist (art, music, PE, and STEM) to create project based learning lessons that integrate multiple subjects through co-teaching. In the third year of the program there is still a lot of learning to do, but it has become a source of enjoyment and identity throughout the school. They are excited to share the structure of the program as well as some successes and pitfalls they have encountered thus far. If you would like, please visit the school site to watch a video created in 2019 to promote the program.
*Stephen also has a Masters in Art Education from MU and is a frequent presenter at state art conferences.
**Katie also has a Masters of Music Education from CMU and has her Kodaly Certification for UCM.
