Drum roll please, for our final CASE 2023 Awards Announcement!

Meet Dawn O'Connor, our Margaret Nicholson Distinguished Service awardee!

We asked Dawn what significance does this award hold for you and she had this to say:

"When I think about my colleagues that have previously received this award, I am humbled to be included amongst these fearless leaders who have stood up for science education over their career. These are my mentors, friends, and have been my role models! I feel that this award is a reflection of the incredible partners I have had to work alongside, the generosity of my family to give me space and time to take on new leadership, and the trust of others as I worked on new projects."

We are thrilled to honor Dawn and all her fellow awardees at this year's 2023 California Science Education Conference in Palm Springs, CA on Friday, October 20, 2023 at 4:00pm.


Jaime Anderson always knew she wanted to be in a profession to serve others, and education has given her the opportunity to serve students, staff, families, and community to make a positive impact.

Meet Brad Schleder, our 2023 Jessica Sawko Teacher Leadership Awardee.

One of Brad's greatest accomplishment of his career has been in establishing an effective 6-year science education program for administrators. Through his work with the CA NGSS Early Implementers, his district was able to have a core group of administrators attend science professional learning and provide sessions on science education to all of our K-8 principals and learning.

To know Brad is to admire him for his selflessness and his ability to connect with others. We are ecstatic to honor him!
