2017 Science Super Stars

Congratulations to the 2016-17 Science Super Star teachers for exemplifying excellence in elementary science teaching!

This year we have three levels of Science Super Stars to celebrate!

All of the teachers listed below are Science Super Stars. They have shown us that they are working diligently to bring meaningful science experiences to their students. 

The "Trailblazers" and "Science Resource Teachers" have gone beyond the standard level of Science Super Star by submitting a more detailed reflection on their science teaching.

The third and highest level belongs to our five "Exemplar of Excellence Honorees." CRS selected from the group of 74 Science Super Stars five teachers to honor at our 20 Years of CRS Celebration on March 16, 2017.
