The United States Mint was able to connect with hundreds of educators and teaching professionals at this year's National Education Association (NEA) EXPO. Professionals from across the Nation representing 3.2 million NEA members had the opportunity to learn about existing and new education outreach materials available from the United States Mint. Attendees also had the chance to sign up to the United States Mint's "Teachers' Network" to receive updates and information about educational outreach and learn about how to use coins in the classroom. Nearly 600 teachers signed up. The outreach was a great success and the United States Mint looks forward to reconnecting next year!
