Carmen Imai

For most science teachers, Carmen needs no introduction. She has been a staple of the science education community here in our region for years now. Her knowledge in science and support for teachers is unparalleled. We look forward to her input to our community of science teachers once again this year.

Lora Holt

As with Carmen, most teachers around the region will also recognize and know Lora Holt. Her skills at presentation and her knowledge of science is only rivaled by her enthusiasm for all things science. She will be helping us out with presentations and support throughout the year. She will also be heading up and hosting the annual MiniCAST conference for science teachers here in El Paso this year. The El Paso Science Network link to register for this yearly event may be found below. We are very lucky to have her on our team.
