Educators From Nixa’s JTSD are Passionate About the Future
The John Thomas School of Discovery was started in Nixa three years ago to serve as a STEAM-focused (STEM with the addition of the Arts) environment.
Dr. Josh Chastain was the first principal of the school and served in that role for three years. He comes to us to discuss the importance of the integration of STEAM into the elementary schools and also the initiative to focus the curriculum on inquiry-based learning.
In his remarks he makes it clear that “The ultimate goal for our kids is to be exceptional learners.”
