COLUMBUS, Mississippi — Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science teacher Tina Gibson was selected to serve as a Research Teacher Captain at this year’s Society for Science & the Public’s High School Research Teachers Conference.

During the 3-day conference in Washington D.C., 200 science research teachers from across the nation met to discuss their teaching practices, troubleshoot any challenges they face in independent science research and learn more about the Society and the Regeneron Science Talent Search. 

As a Research Teacher Captain, Gibson used her expertise in guiding students in research methods and techniques to assist other teachers who attended the conference. Although this year’s conference has come to a close, she will continue to serve as a resource for her fellow teachers in the community and the district.
