NCSLA Fellows Represent at the NSTA Regional Conference
The NCSLA Science Leadership Fellows Program had an eventful fall. In September, its meeting focused on personality types and how they impact leadership roles. Kendall Hageman capably provided a stimulating discussion on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Inventory, interpreting the results, and applying them to their professional lives as leaders. The Fellows also met in November at the NCSLA/National Science Teachers Association Area Conference in Charlotte, with the Fellows representing NCSLA in a number of roles. From learning and participating in the NCSLA Leadership Summit to sharing information at the NCSLA booth to presenting on various topics at the NSTA Conference, the Fellows were active participants at the meetings.
Special congratulations to current Fellow Covey Denton. Covey Denton will be traveling to Costa Rica in March to present at the International Consortium for Research in Science and Mathematics Education conference. Covey also was an NSTA award recipient at last spring’s NSTA National Conference in Atlanta and currently serves as a judge for the NSTA ExploraVision competition. She was selected as an ExploraVision Teacher Ambassador for the 2018-2019 school year and represented the competition at NSTA in Charlotte.
In alumni news, congratulations go to Beverly Owens, a Fellows Alumna. During the area conference, Beverly won an NSTA prize drawing that providers her with free air travel to St. Louis for the National Science Teachers Association’s conference in April. The excitement hasn’t faded since November. On New Year’s Eve, Beverly tweeted, “Can't wait to hear Retired Astronaut Scott Kelly's talk at #NSTA19 in St. Louis! Thanks to @SouthwestAir and @NSTA for sponsoring me with a voucher to attend.”
