National Science Teachers Association Conference

A few weeks ago I headed to San Antonio with Sarah Pursley and Maggie Melvin to the national NSTA conference. While getting there and getting home were a fiasco, the trip was well worth the many, many hours we spent in the airport.  We were able to learn from the best of the best in science education. While we learned an incredible amount about ways to improve the scientific work we do with students, we were also proud of the work Trinity is already doing. The big themes were science note booking, inquiry-based learning, and the new national standards. I am so thankful for this professional development opportunity and have already used much that I learned in our classroom.
