Each teacher in training, as required by VCU, is asked to join a professional, educational organization. As such, we are given a variety of different groups and organizations to join that span across various different topics and content areas.
I have joined the NSTA, National Science Teachers Association. This organization focuses on the promotion, integration, and continued growth of science and the study of science within a classroom. Below is a link to their website which can offer more insight for anyone who is interested in it.
