The National Science Teaching Association (NSTA), the largest professional organization in the world seeking to transform science education to benefit all through professional learning, partnerships, and advocacy, welcomed seven new members to its Council. Dr. Taylor Moon was named NSTA District II Director, representing New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont.

“I welcome and appreciate these dedicated and enthusiastic educators who will give so generously of their time to help NSTA carry out its mission,” said Erika Shugart, Ph.D., CEO, NSTA. “Their diverse backgrounds and expertise will enhance their efforts to serve their NSTA colleagues.”

The Council is composed of 18 district directors, and each member is the official representative of NSTA in their geographic district and serves as the primary liaison on issues of importance to science and improvement of science education at all levels. The Council functions as the advisory body to the Board of Directors. 

By June 2025, the Council will transition into a new governance body called the Leadership Council, which will be composed of the District and Division Directors. The role of the Leadership Council will be to build community, establish and nurture partnerships, and oversee position statements.
