Steve Jones: Space Foundation Teacher Liaison

Mr. Steve Jones, Astronomy/Physics/Science Research teacher, was honored this spring by being selected as a Space Foundation Teacher Liaison!

What is a Teacher Liaison?

Space Foundation International Teacher Liaisons are a community of over 375 educators worldwide who inspire the next generation of explorers. Started in 2004, this internationally recognized program provides benefits that improve teaching skills, provide an encouraging community for educators, and influence space and science education at a global level.

Teacher Liaisons use space-related education programs and practical resources in the classroom to act as advocates for space-based education in their schools and districts. This program is open to public, private, and homeschool teachers, as well as school administrators, principals, specialists, curriculum and instruction developers, and others who deliver education programs to kindergarten through college students.

Space Foundation International Teacher Liaisons serve as a connection between Space Foundation and their schools and communities, often collaborating with other organizations such as NASA.

Mr. Jones was invited out to Colorado Springs, CO, for the 39th annual Space Foundation Space Symposium, where he was not only inducted into the liaison program, but was a presenter of what his Astronomy course students are doing!  While there he was able to meet and interact with several astronauts, including Gen. Charlie Duke, Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 16, and the 10th man to walk on the Moon!
