PreK-12 Aerospace & Engineering Program Manager

 
Mrs. Wall

 

Teaching is my profession—aerospace education is my passion. I have the privilege of sharing my passion with every student that gets excited about learning through aerospace, every parent I help learn with their child, every colleague I collaborate with to integrate aerospace into curriculum in creative ways, and every new partner I involve with our school supporting education.

It is what I do best. It is my privilege to assist each child to believe in dreams and possibilities, and to develop confidence in learning. My mission is to assure that all children, especially under-represented groups, are challenged by rigorous academics to prepare them for STEM careers and to know that learning is exciting and fun.
