A Tribute to Margaret O'Sullivan - Replay of NGSNavigators Ep. 38

 

This tribute to Margaret O'Sullivan features a replay of Episode 38 of the NGSNavigators Podcast. Interviewed by Todd Campbell, Margaret shared her experiences with NGSS as a 6th grade science teacher as well as the inspiration behind starting the NGSNavigators Podcast.
