The Australian Science Teachers’ Association (ASTA) is pleased to announce the election of Margaret Shepherd as the President-Elect. Margaret has been the President of the Science Teachers Association of NSW (STANSW) since 2017, on the STANSW Council since 2001, and on the ASTA Board since 2015. 

Margaret’s four-year term starts this year, 2023 as President-Elect, then 2024-2025 as President and 2026 as Past President. ASTA is fortunate to have Margaret leading our organisation in this next phase. Margaret is a very passionate science educator who has taught science for over 25 years in the Catholic system. She was the Leader of Learning: Science for the Sydney Catholic Schools Southern Region from 2015 to 2021. She is also the founder of SCIeducation.

Margaret’s vision for ASTA is to stabilise and strengthen ASTA’s position as a strong voice which advocates for science teachers around Australia at a national level.
