Space Case

| 3 Comments

Sally Ride, the first woman in space, and other bloggers have created a new blog that will detail the out-of-this-world journey of teacher-turned-astronaut Barbara Morgan. The former English, math, and science teacher will now have a chance to explore the universe after preparing for over 20 years. The blog includes photos of Morgan readying herself for spaceflight. Recent entries include this one from Todd Halvorson:

This morning, Mrs. Laura Bush called Barbara Morgan, an astronaut and former teacher who will travel to space for the first time on the flight of the Space Shuttle Endeavour to the International Space Station.
Mrs. Bush expressed congratulations from one schoolteacher to another and noted that she and the President appreciate Ms. Morgan's commitment to America's space program, to teaching, and to students. Mrs. Bush concluded the call noting that Americans—and lots of excited teachers and students—will be watching the mission with a lot of pride.

We've now updated the post to include the link.

I am a Teaching cresdential candidate at Chapman University, Palmdale, CA. I was so inspired by Barbara Morgan's courage and committment, I used a cross-curricular Language Arts/Science blog design for my own University assignment this week. You can visit the blog at http://mrszych.blogspot.com
