Brownsville Independent SD
Brownsville, TX
I live in one of the fastest growing school districts in the country, with 98% hispanic population, many first generation high school attendees, with little opportunity for students to travel. There is a strong effort to provide science and math support for our students but no local science museum except for a new Children's Museum. I am currently teaching science enrichment for 8th grade at a middle school that has not performed well on the state standardized tests but that is remaking itself with great efforts of new administration and additional support staff. Because of my involvement with many NASA funded experiences over the past several years, including being part of the SSE and SSA programs, I have been collaborating with the Texas Space Grant Consortium to present astronomy and space related training to teachers across the state of Texas. I also use our school district's portable planetarium to present regular monthly astronomy programs through the local library system, sharing the beauties of the night sky and excitement of space missions since 1995 and reaching many eager astronomer/space aficionados. Additionally I write a weekly astronomy/space based newspaper column called Stargazer for the Brownsville Herald daily newspaper. I am able to serve as a first-person source to the area population about space related missions and am excited to be part of the SSE program.
