NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) Conference

TESLA was fortunate enough to travel to and present at the National Science Teachers Association Conference in Boston during March of 2014.  In collaboration with Dr. Carla Zembal-Saul, Mark Merritt, and Michele Crowl, five TESLA members planned and delivered a presentation on the effectiveness of pre-service science educator opportunities, such as TESLA, in developing successful teachers.  TESLA’s mission at the conference was to share our experiences with representatives from other universities so that future teachers all across the country can receive support through programs that are modeled after TESLA’s strong example.  Along with sharing all of the amazing work that TESLA has accomplished at NSTA, TESLA members were also given the opportunity to attend the conference.  The resources, presentations, and panels proved to be informative and valuable and gave TESLA members a unique experience with science education before even graduating from the university.  Attending NSTA was a huge success and a big step for TESLA, and we hope to be able to attend NSTA again in the coming years.
