Finally, this chapter talks about how to translate your enthusiasm and energy into becoming a young leader in the world of science education. It will look at possible future career aspirations that science teachers can have, and how to achieve those by taking advantage of the ideas proposed in the previous chapters. When looking at this final chapter, I had to ask myself, “How did I end up here?” It was not so long ago that I had taken the reigns of my first classroom and had jumped into the world of science education. I now have the great opportunity to work with the science education community as the K–12 Science Specialist with the Utah State Office of Education. So how did I get from there to here?
