Alison Wright

I am the Sr. Associate for Professional Learning Relationships for NSTA and the NSTA Representative for California, Hawaii, Nevada, and New Mexico. In addition to sharing out about the wealth of resources and services that NSTA has to offer educators, I also work to connect educators with one another and with NSTA staff and authors to provide more professional learning opportunities to help build capacity. Success for all, will take us all. Travel and education have always been my passions. I was a classroom teacher for nearly twenty years in diverse settings. I was an Early Childhood Educator, Elementary Educator, and High School Educator; in Public, Private, and Progressive Schools; in Special Education and General Education; and, have been very fortunate to have been a student and/or educator in Australia, England, NJ, ME, VT, MA, and CA. I am excited to be traveling, connecting, and collaborating with educators around the importance of science education!
