Know any new science teachers (teaching for less than 5 years)

If you know any science teachers who have been teaching for less than 5 years I really encourage you to let them know about the NSTA New Science Teacher Academy. 

If you are selected you will get:
  • An opportunity to participate in a variety of web-based professional development activities, including web seminars
  • Unlimited use of resources including vetted web links for lesson plans, links to state and national standards, professional organizations, safety tips and more;
  • An opportunity to participate in New Teacher Center e-Mentoring for Student Success (eMSS) developed by NSTA, the New Teacher Center, and Montana State University that includes:
    • e-Mentoring with an experienced teacher in the same science discipline and grade level;
    • Facilitated online curriculum that focuses on science content and applicable classroom pedagogy;
    • Access to a nationwide, online network of science educators and scientists that facilitate the exchange of information, ideas, and resources;
  • Accommodations, coverage of airfare, food, and registration fees to attend the NSTA national conference;
  • An opportunity to participate in specialized conference pathways and to participate in a Research Dissemination Conference or a Professional Development Institute

  • The trip the NSTA conference is enough of a reason to apply, but all of the extra are fantastic for any new teacher.  Please help spread the word about this great program!
