  • As a member of the NASA Explorer School Team, I helped develop, coordinate and implement several NASA educational activities, projects and events.

    I wrote/co-wrote class curriculum, schools strategic plans, implementation plans and helped develop an Aeronautic and Space Curriculum for a Pre-K through 5th grade elementary school.

    I aligned national and state standards of education with NASA priorities in our lesson plans for after-school activities including:
    *Microgravity research.
    *2006 NASA Explorer School Student Symposium
    *NASA after-school projects. (Lunar Challenge, ISS Nights, Family Science Nights, etc.)
    *Space camp at Marshall Center.
    *Family Science Nights.
    *Lego Robotics program.
    *Digital Learning Network events.

    I conducted several years of district-sponsored workshops on both writing and technology at our annual district Student Writing Workshop. I wrote and received grants to provide STEM opportunities and improve reading skills and attended grant-writing workshops.

    I taught Audio/Video instruction and digital technology to students, supervising daily morning newscasts in our TV studio.

    I also hosted a TV show called "Eye in the Classroom" interviewing teachers in the school system.

    I taught students computer technology skills to create video reports to air once a week, basic filming techniques, non-linear editing and developing scripts. Students also developed multimedia projects such as “Books on CD” and “Books on DVD” and more.
