A Liberty Elementary School teacher will take her ideas on how to teach science to students to other educators across the country.
Julie Michaud has been chosen to serve as a curator for the National Science Teachers Association’s Next Generation Science Standards initiative.
Michaud will attend the Association’s Area Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Nov. 8-9 and she will "share ideas with other teachers from across the country on how to better teach science concepts to students," the Cherokee County School District said last week.
Only six teachers were selected to serve as curators.
As a curator, Michaud will:
- Participate in discussion forums with teachers about their topic;
- Identify and describe 20-50 resources that address the goals within their topic;
- Review the work of other curators and provide feedback; and
- Participate in telephone or online discussions with one another and NSTA staff.
“I am extremely proud of what she has been able to accomplish,” Liberty Elementary Principal Dr. Nicole Holmes said.
