NSTA President Carolyn Hayes Welcomes NSTA's New Committee, Advisory Board, and Panel Members

Text-based image saying "We will strive to not only strengthen our organization through better engagement of the membership but also equip science educators to be advocates, to strengthen elementary science education, to implement NGSS practices through STEM, and to utilize NSTA resources for their professional learning." On behalf of the leadership of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), NSTA staff, and NSTA members, I would like to welcome and thank the NSTA members listed below, who are newly serving on our Standing Committees, Advisory Boards, and Panels; their terms of appointment began on June 1, 2015, and they’ve already begun doing important work like planning for our upcoming area conferences, getting the word out about legislation affecting teachers across the United States, and reviewing our journals and other publications!

With the adoption of the NSTA Strategic Goals each committee, advisory board, and panel will focus on some aspect of the implementation plan for the upcoming year. We will strive to not only strengthen our organization through better engagement of the membership but also equip science educators to be advocates, to strengthen elementary science education, to implement NGSS practices through STEM, and to utilize NSTA resources for their professional learning.

Your presidential chain (which includes me, President-Elect Mary Gromko, and Retiring President Juliana Texley), Board and Council, are very grateful for the willingness of these members to join our team. We will work together to develop creative attitudes in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for all our students. NSTA members who are interested in volunteering for a position on one of our committees, advisory boards, or review panels can find more information online. Not a member, but interested in shaping the direction of science education in the future? See all of our member benefits here.
