Leigh Anne Brewster is a middle school Project Lead the Way (PLTW) instructor and STEAM Education Specialist at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School where she is responsible for the implementation of the Project Lead the Way curriculum in 6th-8th grade.

The PLTW courses offered in 6th-8th Grade: Design & Modeling, Computer Science for Innovators and Makers, and Automation & Robotics, empowers students with the skills relevant to any career path they choose to pursue. On a daily basis in the PLTW classroom, you’ll notice students involved in design challenges that push them to build critical problem solving, establish effective team collaboration, and building perseverance when their design or ideas don’t work the first time around. It’s all part of the APB and Design Process, learned in PLTW.

Though new to the PLTW curriculum, Leigh Anne is a veteran teacher, having taught over 10 years. In the last 4 years, Leigh Anne has performed extensive work in the Canvas LMS implementation, 1:1 student learning classroom environments and device management, blended-learning environments, and integrating the use of technology to support education.
