My name is Megan Schufreider, and I work here in the Academy Education Division, developing curricula for teachers and delivering science classes to students. With degrees in Biology and Museum Studies and experience working as both a classroom teacher and a museum educator, I am delighted to moderate this blog for our community of science teachers.
The Teachers’ Lounge blog serves as a direct line of communication between you and our Education Division -– and an opportunity to share ideas and enthusiasm with your colleagues. Each week, Education staff will post entries aimed to keep you up-to-date with science-related news. Science is an ever-changing discipline, and we hope to shed some light on recent discoveries to make the content accessible to your students.
In addition, we’ll recommend resources for teaching science and report on professional development events. So be sure to add this page to your Favorites.
