SHOULD SCIENCE TEACHERS' TITLE CHANGE TO REFLECT THEIR TRAINING AND TEACHING?

Updated: Jun 20, 2022



The question “Should science teachers' titles change to reflect their training and teaching?” was not meant to imply that the title "science teacher" has a negative connotation. However, it was meant to acknowledge that science teachers have been “wearing a lot of hats.”


Using new instructional models like the NGSS standards and integrating different aspects of STEM disciplines including engineering practices and content within the science curriculum has caused the role of science teachers to evolve. This is a fact. Teachers have had to navigate and become technology savvy while integrating math and engineering activities to augment children’s learning and acquisition of STEM skills in science classes.


School systems have done better to support and train their science teachers using the standards for best practices and the integration of technology like ZOOM, TEAMS, Nearpod, PHET SIMULATION, GIZMO, DIGITAL BOOKS, etc. Additionally, parents have played a significant role in helping their children with learning during this pandemic. Given the comprehensive instruction from science teachers (along with parents now being co-teachers at home) I again ask, “Should science teachers' titles change to reflect their training and teaching?”
