This is a mixed methods study investigating the characteristics, attitudes, and perceptions of teachers at a STEM high school regarding teaching and learning, as well as the characteristics of those teachers’ curricula by collecting interview, observation, survey, and artifact data. Analysis of three qualitative participants’ data and fourteen survey responders revealed strong themes of teachers’ positive attitudes regarding education that is authentic and focused on skills, as well as a strong focus on building student-teacher relationships, with little differences in reported and enacted curriculum.
