Biographical Information:

The frontier of space has always interested Chris as a child when she was enthralled with each new discovery that was reported in the news. Keeping a journal and recording events happening in space, she enjoyed sharing these events with others. Professionally, as a K-8 teacher, she led many clubs and programs that dealt with science - but especially with outer space. She put together clubs that explored our solar system, rocket building, comets and asteroids, among other topics. Under her direction, students not only learned about how to build rockets and the concepts of flight but felt empowered as they saw what they were learning about had similar application with current operations and explorations with the space program. Having enthusiastic students return for her classes gives her great satisfaction as she knows that learning is a life-long process and loves developing deeper and more meaningful quests for knowledge.
