Utah teacher picked for NASA-affiliated teacher-training program
DRAPER, Utah — A Utah teacher left Monday for an opportunity very few people ever get to experience.
Jennifer Muir, a science teacher at Draper Park Middle School in the Canyons School District, was chosen last year to attend a NASA-affiliated teacher-training program. Part of the five-day program includes a flight to the stratosphere.
Muir is in a select class. She is one of 24 U.S. teachers from 13 states picked as 2022 Airborne Astronomy Ambassadors. To learn more about her selection, click here.
In the past two years, Muir is the third Utah teacher from the Canyons School District to be selected for the program.
According to a news release from the school district, Milo Maughan and Clief Castleton are the other two. Maughan is now employed at the Utah State Office of Education. Castleton is an educator at Hillcrest.
