January 15, 2019•22 min
Growing up, Pete Stenberg enjoyed math and science and decided he wanted to become a civil engineer. After three years of engineering classes he decided he couldn’t see himself in an office setting all the time, so he took an education class. As they say, the rest is history. Stenberg has been teaching and coaching in Minot for 28 years.
As an educator, Stenberg has adapted with the times. He pushes 21st century skills by integrating technology into his classroom, utilized flexible seating, and engages students in hands-on experiential learning all while integrating differential instruction (IDP’s, 504’s) and concentrating on social-emotional learning.
In this podcast, Stenberg has his class on site at Roosevelt Park Zoo in Minot for a hands-on, cross-disciplinary lesson that also gives students a chance to participate in a community project.
