Trinity Announces New STEAM Integration Specialist Position

Atlanta-based Trinity School, a private elementary-only school that serves students age 3 through sixth grade, is excited to announce the addition of a STEAM Integration Specialist to its faculty line-up. Kate Burton, Trinity’s sixth grade science teacher and an 11-year veteran of the School, will move into this role in the upcoming school year. Funded through a three-year grant that focuses on strategic innovation, the STEAM Integration Specialist will be responsible for supporting effective integrated learning experiences for both Trinity students and teachers. Burton will work directly with students and their teachers to deepen understanding and implementation of STEAM while coaching teachers to develop more effective integrated instruction and assessment practices. Burton, who has taught 4th through 7th grades during her 22-year teaching career, is working toward her doctorate in teacher leadership. She holds an educational specialist degree in curriculum and instruction from Kennesaw State University, a master’s degree in elementary math and science from University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, and a bachelor’s degree in English from Stetson University in Florida.

Goddard Windward prides themselves in providing a “whole-child” focus on learning. Goddard graduates perform about 42% higher than their peers in all academic areas, however, students are equally well-versed in team work, community building, dramatic arts, communication, responsibility and most importantly, kindness – partnering with parents to mold our future generation with thoughtfulness and pride.
