CSTA Classroom Science

Region 4 Update - Dec/Jan 2021-2022

We use the end of a year to set goals for our future. As an educator, these goals are often focused on reaching more teachers and students or learning about a new (or new to me) topic in science education. This year, I am thinking about goal setting a bit differently. I am taking the time to look back at the last year (or two) and celebrate the teachers who kept science in the classroom during the craziness of at-home, hybrid and back in the classroom instruction. I am looking at the stacks of books and articles I have read and reminding myself how each has shaped my work. In 2022, I hope we all take more time to remind ourselves and our colleagues  that the daily actions we make for students and science education are worthy of celebration. Thank you for everything that you do!
