10,315 Missing Teachers

NSTAWorkshopIf your child’s science teacher is not at school today, I’ll put 10 to 1 odds that you’ll find the teacher in Dallas, Texas. Why? It’s the gathering place for close to 25,000 of the best science teachers in the world! Dallas is host to the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) convention. Just to give you an idea of the size of the event, the exhibit hall is over 1,000,000 square feet with almost 3,000 vendors. The best part of the convention, however, is the huge number of teacher workshops. Any given hour there are more than 60 concurrent workshops… and you can only pick one. My day started early on Thursday with an 8:00 AM presentation to about 450 teachers and I haven’t stopped but for a few seconds to pour a little Starbucks into my veins for nourishment. If you want to learn more about NSTA, visit their website at www.nsta.org.
