It is day 2 of the NSTA National Conference! One of my favorite ways to start the day is the Elementary Extravaganza—it’s a great event with lots of hands-on activities and demonstrations specifically for elementary educators. While walking through the extravaganza, I could not help noticing all the fun education and science themed shirts—one teacher said her team invites students to design a T-shirt each year and they select a winning design to print on their shirts.
I’m always impressed with the connections attendees make at the conference—and even some surprise reunions! I overhead two people greet each other in surprise: The woman exclaimed she was so happy to see a former student at the conference and discover he’d become a teacher, too!
Meet Me in the Middle—which obviously focuses on middle level educators—is later today and the high school share-a-thon is scheduled for tomorrow.
