ARLINGTON, Va. —Two Forsyth County School District educators will help to promote science innovation in the nation.

The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), the largest professional organization in the world promoting excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning, welcomed four new members to its Board of Directors, including Kelly R. Price, a curriculum coordinator for Forsyth County Schools.

The NSTA also welcomed six new members to its council, including North Forsyth High School earth science teacher Donna Governor.

Price has about 20 years of teaching and leadership experience.

Prior to becoming Forsyth County Schools’ curriculum coordinator, Price taught middle and high school science for 14 years.

Elected by NSTA’s membership, the new board and council members began serving their three-year term on June 1.

“The new board and council members bring a vast amount of experience and diverse perspectives to the table,” said NSTA President Bill Badders. “They will use their expertise in the field of science education to bring about positive change and effective solutions to pressing issues facing the association and its members.”

Governor has been a leader in the science education community. Governor has taught science at all levels.

She has also co-taught graduate-level courses for teachers in astronomy education online through Montana State University and the University of Wyoming since 1998. In addition to teaching, she is the current president-elect and webmaster of the Georgia Science Teachers Association (GSTA).

She has earned several awards and honors throughout her accomplished career, including being named the 2007 Georgia recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science Teaching.
