Redlands, Calif. – The UC Davis C-STEM Center has named Redlands Unified School District Superintendent Mauricio Arellano their inaugural “C-STEM Superintendent of the Year.”

 

“It is both humbling and rewarding to be recognized in this way, especially since I really struggled with Math as a child,” said Superintendent Arellano. “We have brave, brilliant teachers and administrators who have used C-STEM, to reach and teach our students and get them excited about learning Math through the use of robotics. My hat is really off to them.”

 

STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics) and Innovation Coordinator Deepika Srivastava was recognized as C-STEM Administrator of the Year. Srivastava has been instrumental in coordinating, training and implementing C-STEM across the District.

 

Clement Middle School Teacher Joshua Barnor was named C-STEM Teacher of the Year. Students in his class used C-STEM concepts to demonstrate their knowledge using Linkbots. Barnor’s recognition comes on the heels of last year’s C-STEM Teacher of the Year – Citrus Valley High School teacher Allen Thoe.

“On behalf of the Board of Education, I am so proud of Superintendent Arellano and our stellar staff members who were also recognized at the 10th annual UC Davis C-STEM Center conference by State Superintendent Tony Thurmond,” said RUSD Board President Patty Holohan. “They are leading the way with innovation and helping our students learn Mathematics while learning.”
