Mrs. Dior Edison

STEM Lab Teacher
Northside ISD

Hi my name is Mrs. Edison and I am the K-5 Stem lab teacher! I have been in education for over 10 years. I have taught math & science in grades 4-8. I was also a regional championship winning robotics coach for the 2018-2019 season. I am originally from Sugarland Texas and have recently moved from the Austin area to San Antonio. I have a bachelors of Science degree with an emphasis in Health education and Psychology from the University of Houston. My favorite things are Coffee, Football & Sloths! 

In my class I do my best to meet the individual needs of each student. My ultimate goal is to make sure to create a safe and welcoming environment in the classroom to which all students feel safe to learn and grow, because ALL students CAN learn! The goal of stem is to make sure that I am teaching student "soft skills" such as problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, emotional intelligence and collaboration. I am emphasizing the engineering and design process which teaches students to think, design, test and modify there work. This creates an atmosphere to know that failure is just a small setback towards success or what I like to call learning to fail gracefully. In the stem lab learners are able to use their creative skills to work through issues and obstacles in a group setting while learning how to communicate effectively to other students.
