GLOBE Teacher is Awarded STEM Middle School Teacher of the Year
June Teisan, a GLOBE teacher at Harper Woods Middle School in Harper Woods, Michigan, USA, was recently named STEM Middle School Educator of the Year by The National Science Teacher Association and PASCO.
Teisan's students participate in a yearlong Water Initiative Project, which gives these young scientists the tools, guidance, and diverse educational settings to increase their connection to nature and build their understanding of lake and watershed observations and information. The project has also supplied a useful new 24/7 data stream for state and local water preservation organizations. Students use 21st century digital tools to craft messages and to share the importance of water stewardship. These endeavors will potentially open doors to careers in these STEM fields for her school's at-risk, minority students.
