Denise Ann Zigler has been a teacher of gifted and talented students for 13 plus years and 22 years altogether in the field of educational instruction. She has taught at NASA-SEMAA, at Tennessee State University. She has taught as far away as the last frontier of Alaska, to the plains of Texas, the desert of Arizona, inner-city schools in Ohio and now she is teaching in Nashville, TN, serving gifted and talented students. Over the past two years she helped create the gifted Practicum at Middle Tennessee State University. She aspired to be the first teacher in space. And then through flowing tears, she watched the space shuttle Challenger. She never lost the dream, and shares that love for exploration with her students through NASA curriculum and with her peers, helping them to implement NASA curriculum into their classrooms. Denise received her Masters in Education, Administration and Supervision from Middle Tennessee State University, August, 2012. She received her Bachelors Degree from Wayland Baptist College, June, 1978. Her family includes her husband, three sons and a grandson.
