St. Mary's STEM Facilitator, Mrs. Kelli Blakeslee, leads our students through the various disciplines. The STEM curriculum is in a constant state of change as she continues to research and develop new ideas to present to students. All students grades K-8 participate in our STEM Education courses.

Mrs. Blakeslee started at St. Mary in 2017. She received a BA in Journalism at Columbia College Chicago and her MAT at Dominican University as well as a Technology Specialist Certificate. Last year, she was selected as one of the facilitators for the 2017 Beck Blended Learning Initiative at Dominican and was a Beck Fellow herself the previous year. She continues to stay current of the trends and best practices of STEM.

She lives in Lake Zurich with her husband and two sons and is a Cubs fan!
