Maurice Frazier Chesapeake Public Schools PostedOctober 23, 2015 AT 11:59 AM What is the ITEEA Membership Goal? To make valuable contributions to my profession and promote public awareness about the importance of STEM education. How do you keep up with trends (networking, resources )? I have been a high school technology education teacher at Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake, VA for 15 years. I also teach at Old Dominion University as an adjunct professor in the STEMPS Department (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics for Professional Studies). The majority of my teaching experience has been in the areas of graphic design and communications. It has been my experience that membership in ITEEA is extremely beneficial in several different ways. I have been able to establish a professional network of colleagues from across the country. I have had the opportunity to make multiple presentations at the annual conference where I was exposed to latest trends, ideas, and innovations in our field. I also have the ability to tap into numerous instructional resources that have assisted me in the delivery of content to my students. Membership in ITEEA has been a tremendous professional asset for me that I plan to maintain for years to come.
