NMEA Member Highlight: Sarah Richards

Posted By Lisa D. Tossey, Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Sarah RichardsSarah Richards is an associate chair and teacher in the Science Department of Saint Ann's School in Brooklyn, NY.

She is currently a member of the Executive Committee and secretary for NMEA and an active member of her local chapter, the New York State Marine Education Association (NYSMEA). 

We asked her four key questions about her experience with NMEA:

1. Why did you join NMEA? 
I joined NMEA in order to meet and network with other teachers, share curriculum ideas, and to be a better-informed marine science educator.

2. How has NMEA helped you achieve your professional goals? 
I have certainly met the three goals stated above!  Through attending the annual conferences, using Scuttlebutt, and being a member of the NMEA board, I have met so many wonderful people who are passionate about marine science and marine education.

3. What are you most proud of NMEA for accomplishing/influencing?
I am most proud of the work that NMEA has done with the ocean literacy principles - helping to write them, and having them be incorporated into the Next Generation Science Standards.

4. If you had to describe NMEA in three words, what would they be?
Stimulating, fun, essential.

Our Membership Drive is underway until June 8, so if you join now, you'll be eligible for raffle prizes from aquariums around the country and our grand prize, a GoPro camera! We'd love to have you join us! Find out more about membership in NMEA today >

Thinking about joining NMEA? Now’s the time!

Posted By Lisa D. Tossey, Tuesday, April 22, 2014

NMEA Membership DriveNMEA is pleased to announce our first ever Membership Drive! Kicking off today, Earth Day (April 22), and continuing through World Oceans Day (June 8), we have seven solid weeks planned of celebrating initiatives such as ocean literacy and highlighting the people that make us who we are: our members.

Are you an educator working with students grades K-12? An up-and-coming professional just entering the field of marine science education? An informal educator about to embark on a busy summer camp season? A university professor or scientist looking to influence the field? A retired professional looking to stay involved? We invite you to join us!

NMEA offers professional resources, connections, leadership opportunities and spheres of influence exclusively in the field of marine science education. We are proud of our niche role, working to advance the field of education of the world of water, both fresh and salt.

So why join now? Because we thought we’d have some fun and invite you along! In addition to all of the benefits available online, in person, and through our peer-reviewed journal, we’re pleased to offer you the opportunity to join at our low professional rates (before they increase on August 1, 2014) and gain entry to our Membership Drive raffle. Thanks to our colleagues and supporters, by joining during our Membership Drive, you will be eligible to win raffle prizes including packages from aquariums throughout the U.S. and our Grand Prize – a GoPro camera! So join us today!

Already a member? We’d love to have you help us spread the word. Please use the hashtag #CatchtheCurrent on social media and send us photos of you in action! Together we can do great things for the ocean. It takes a village and we’re so glad you’re a part of ours! 

For a little member fun - can you describe NMEA in just three words?
