By Candace Laxamana, Courier News Editor
Michelle Galaria, a freshmen biology teacher returned from the National Association of Biology Teachers, or NABT, Conference in Anaheim, California and received an award from Animalearn.
Animalearn is a non profit organization that provides money to schools to learn about animals.
The NABT Conference consisted of science lectures and discussion groups help by teachers and organization representative. Galaria said “I was so busy and excited attending all of the science lectures and talking with other science teachers/organization reps, that I did not even have time to go to Disneyland, although I could see it and hear it from the hotel making me feel even better about my decision not to go!”
Animalearn granted $1,000 to Galaria to buy classroom supplies for her fellow biology classes. Galaria is going to consult with other biology teachers to see what other supplies is needed.
