Today’s post coming at you from the National Science Teacher’s Association conference! Science teachers, man. They blow me away. It’s so wonderful to see how passionate they are about teaching, to overhear them trading awesome teaching ideas and getting more data and research into the classroom. It is just GREAT. I wish I could go back to high school again and take their classes!
The conference also requires coffee. A lot of coffee.
