Hello NCSLA members!
I’m Melissa Butts, new NCSLA Board Member! I have been in education for 14 years as an educator and, in my current role for the past 4 years, as a STEM Educational Specialist. In this role, I teach professional development, work with beginning teachers, guide Lead Science teachers in all elementary schools, teach model lessons, share research-based practices and instructional strategies, help teachers analyze data to impact instruction, lead school teams to STEM competitions, network with universities, and collaborate with other disciplines to integrate STEM across the curriculum. On a daily basis, I am in numerous classrooms to help teachers, administrators and students with the support they need. This ranges from curriculum resources to just lending a helping hand. Hats off to all NCSLA members for your support in STEM education! I look forward to continuing to build leaders in STEM and networking with each of you!
