One small step for a teacher…

…one giant leap for my classroom?

I’m going to Space Academy for Educators!

I found out on Thursday night that I was awarded an Educators @ Space Academy scholarship from Honeywell. This is a fabulous program, and Honeywell is very generous to cover all expenses for the trip.  I must say I am very excited to be going. It’s been a dream of mine to go to space camp for a very long time!

I can’t wait for this fabulous experience so I can bring even more great STEM experiences into my classroom. I hope that I can continue to inspire my students to dream about their futures and ways science, technology, engineering and math can help them reach for the stars.

I’ll be attending in June, so please check back in a few months for updates. To find out more about the Educators @ Space Academy program and Honeywell’s involvement, please go here.

  1. Congratulations! It sounds like a great week. My daughter is saying now she really wants a career in science of some sort. I keep feeding her information about the student space camp.

    1. Thanks, Kay! I wanted to go to space camp as a kid, but I never had a chance. I’m so excited to be going now! How exciting that your daughter is thinking of science careers! Space camp would definitely be an amazing experience for her.

  2. Dear Janelle,
    I find space REALLY interesting especially Steven Hawking’s Universe. I just feel intrigued with space-wormholes, Europa, formation of black holes, things in that category. You’re really lucky; I would love to go to Space Camp. I’m thinking of taking studying space into consideration actually. I don’t know why but I enjoy history and science biographies on TV but learning about it in school- its boring to me. That’s really interesting though that you get to attend Space Camp.

    1. Hi, Jazzy! Thanks for stopping by. I agree, space is super amazing. I’ve read some really mind-bending books about space-time, worm holes, and parallel universes. It’s all very cool.

      I’m sorry your science classes aren’t that exciting. Hopefully you’ll have a class soon that will get even more interested in science. I’ll also be posting about space camp after I go. Maybe you’ll get a chance to go one day; they do offer scholarships for students. You might want to check it out.

  3. There is a new online community for teachers to share ideas, thoughts, and funny stories. It’s also a great way for bloggers to find other like minded teachers to follow their blogs. Check it out today at
