Michael Palagi has his Bachelors in Early Childhood Education, and Masters of Ed. in Reading. He has taught in Germany, Japan and is now living in Thailand. He has also spent two summers volunteering at schools in Myanmar and Kenya to support local teachers and students. Michael started university majoring in Technology Education and had planned on teaching woodshop, drafting and architecture. He has been able to merge his two worlds by finding ways to help bring STEAM education into the early years. As a huge proponent of play, his students have shown him how capable early learners are. Students have voice and choice in their learning, and then apply these skills to authentic experiences. Michael is always excited to collaborate with his early learners and fellow teammates at NIST.
