SHS Teacher selected to New Science Teacher Academy

A Seneca High Schoolteacher will participate in a prestigious science teacher academy.  Stephen Hudson was chosen from hundreds of applications nationwide to participate as a fellow in the 2012 New Science Teacher Academy.  The largest professional organization in the world promoting excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all, the National Science Teachers Association hosts 244 science teachers from across the country in a year-long professional development program.  Hudson was the only South Carolina teacher selected to the program, which is designed to help promote quality science teaching, enhance teacher confidence and classroom excellence and improve teacher content knowledge. The 2012 Fellows were selected on the basis of several criteria, including showing evidence of a solid science background and displaying a strong interest in growing as a professional science educator. Each Fellow will receive a comprehensive National Science Teachers Association membership package, online mentoring and the opportunity to participate in a variety of web-based professional development activities. In addition, each Fellow will receive financial support to attend and participate in the National Science Teachers Association’s 2013 National Conference on Science Education in San Antonio, Texas.
