Last week, Haverford House had a special visitor…MY DAD! He and I both attended the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Area Conference at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
My Haverford House work placement is with FirstHand, the educational initiative of the University City Science Center. FirstHand sent a colleague and me to the conference, and we came away with a lot of ideas for our programs.
My dad is a science teacher in northern New Jersey and his district allowed him to go for professional development. It was awesome to spend some time with him, and to learn about what he focuses on professionally. I enjoyed sharing ideas and comparing notes on the several sessions that we both attended.
