Two Duval County Teachers selected as participants in the Space Foundation's 2008 Teacher Liaison Program
The Space Foundation has selected two Duval County teachers, John Poe Jr. from Wolfson High School and Kathleen Poe from Fletcher Middle School, to be a part of their 2008 Teacher Liaison Program.
The Space Foundation's highly-regarded Teacher Liaison program, now in its fifth year, selects teachers who actively promote space and science education in the classroom and the community. Educators throughout the United States, ranging from elementary school teachers to administrators were among the 69 individuals chosen for this honor.
The selected teachers serve as advocates for space science education and conduits into their classrooms, schools and districts. Teacher Liaisons are selected by a panel consisting of an industry expert, Teacher Liaisons, member of the military, and Space Foundation representative.
"This year's Teacher Liaisons are truly an extraordinary group of educators," said Iain Probert, vice president of education for the Space Foundation. "In addition to the largest pool of applicants to date, this group includes three Albert Einstein fellows and three teachers who were finalists for NASA’s educator astronaut program."
This remarkable group of educators will be recognized and participate in a professional development workshop in conjunction with the 24th National Space Symposium. The first gathering of the global space community, the symposium will take place April 7-10 at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs.
