Welcome to Scholars Academy




    Hi, my name is Mrs. Nadbielny and I am happy to continue as the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) teacher at Scholars Academy, now in my fifth year.  I am excited to see so many familiar faces and welcome our new students to Scholars.  You may hear your child refer to it as STEAM as we are adding the “A” for Art.


    I am currently working toward my Gifted Education Certification through Rutgers University.  I have a Master’s degree in Education from Seton Hall University with a concentration in Instructional Design and Technology.  I have a Bachelor's degree from New York University (NYU) with a double major in Computer Science and Math.  I worked as a computer programmer on Wall Street for eleven years before taking off some time to raise my son and daughter who are now in college and graduate school.


    We have a rigorous program to cover this year and our focus will be on the 4 C’s of 21st century skills: collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity.  Students will collaborate while designing and building various STEAM projects while using the design engineering process.  Students will also build programmable robots and code, which I am very passionate about.  It is my goal to teach students how to think critically and how to solve problems, skills that can be used throughout life.  I look forward to working with your children this year!
