Rich Glickman has a unique way to prepare scholars for STEM careers.

No grades. No failing.

"When you remove the grade, it’s not an F, it’s go back to the drawing board and start again," he states.

The initiatives start at North Charleston Elementary, continue at Morningside Middle School and North Charleston High School.

Students are tasked with reading directions, writing programs and using arithmetic to solve the problems and work in teams, similar to real world STEM careers.

His unique approach makes Glickman the December STEM educator of the month.
