It’s everywhere you look – on TV, on the radio, in the halls, in the lounge, all social media, and now this blog ;-). It’s voting season, and for better or worse you can’t avoid it. While so many focus on the presidential election, lets not forget about what we actually have control over – local offices. Including your friendly Oklahoma Chapter of the National Science Teachers Association!
Oklahoma Science Teachers Association (OSTA) is looking for science educators that want to get involved and become an officer or board member! So many things are out of our control but this is something that you can influence. Science education is in a transition period, as is the OSTA. You can play a positive role in the direction that both are heading by running for a position!
I’ve been the OSTA Secretary (now going to run for President-Elect 🙂 )and have loved it! Not only have I met really great science teachers from all across Oklahoma, I also feel like I am making a positive impact on something that is near and dear to my heart. And let’s face it, in a voting season that’s feels like a circus, a positive light is welcomed!
We are accepting nominations until this Saturday, October 15th at midnight so get yours in today! OR do you know someone who would be great?! Nominate them! If you enter their contact information I’ll send out an email saying they were nominated and ask them to answer the questions 🙂 You’ll find the nominations form here. If you have any questions please feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope to see your name on the list!
