Congratulations to Dr. Paula Beck who recently published her first children’s book, Zoe and Joey Make a Friend. Dr. Beck has been an art teacher in the South Huntington Union Free School District for over two decades. She has long been an advocate of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Architecture and Mathematics) and has incorporated this concept into her teaching. Her students recycle materials and “engineer” individual art projects in class. Her projects at Maplewood Intermediate School show the creativity of young minds.  Her book was inspired by the work of the Maplewood students as she gleaned ideas from their enthusiasm and excitement.

Congratulations, Dr. Beck. We are excited to read your new book!
