Supporting Excellent Science Teaching for Georgia

District 9 Director: Donita Legoas

Hello, my name is Donita Legoas. I am a 6th grade Earth Science and STEM Research teacher at A.R. Johnson Health Science and Engineering Magnet School in Augusta, Georgia.  I have been teaching for around 23 years in a variety of grade levels.  This year my goals are to increase membership in our area and to  offer professional development opportunities to members in my district and to be an advocate for any needs of the educators and administrators in our area.

I have a 24 year old son who is a graduate of Georgia Southern University and is now a reporter for the Augusta Chronicle Newspaper.  I am also known as "One of the Science Sisters" because my twin sister, Kristina Istre (the GSTA Middle School Rep.), is also a science teacher at my school. We enjoy presenting workshops on science education topics throughout the year.

I am excited to be elected the new District 9 Representative and I hope to raise our current membership in GSTA. I am confident that with hard work, Science education in the state of Georgia will continue to be a focus and will help students to realize its importance in their future success.
