My NSTA / Peers / Amy Banks

I have been teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade science and maker education for almost 20 years, all at the same PreK-12 independent all-girls school in Dallas. My favorite thing about teaching is those "ah-ha" moments, when you see a child work out for herself a solution or suddenly understand something she didn't before. Those smiles light up my heart! My favorite pastime is traveling, and my favorite trip ever was to the Galapagos Islands aboard a National Geographic ship. I have been a member of NSTA since I started teaching. I have learned so much from and with other members...I cannot imagine my life as a science teacher without the NSTA!
