Alaska Teachers Pursue Summer Professional Development
The 2015-2016 year has many wonderful opportunities on the horizon. Our mission is to be a voice for quality science education in Alaska, empowering teachers and promoting student achievement. Our goal as an organization is to provide educators with a forum to discuss science and pedagogy. We are here to serve our members and to help network with other educators throughout the state. There are many ways for you to help promote our association and continue to bring Science into the forefront of the minds of community members and state stakeholders.
I challenge each of you this upcoming year to invite a colleague to become a member of our association so we build a strong advocacy group for Science Education in Alaska.
Ways to be involved:
Alaska Math & Science Conference: Sitka Oct. 23-26
Help develop science curriculum for your district
Promote collaboration between the teachers of science and the teachers of other disciplines
Join SOS (Science in our Schools) group
Pursue various PD opportunities in your districts
Thank you and have a wonderful year!
