This summer, Martin City's sixth grade science teacher, Anika Williams, had the opportunity to participate in the Honeywell Educators at Space Academy program. There were over 1,400 applications submitted worldwide by teachers, and Honeywell chose 224 teachers for this year's program. The selected group was comprised of teachers representing 35 countries and 45 states. The Grandview School District is fortunate to have had five teachers selected for this year's program: Anika Williams, Samantha Dane, Hannah Davis, DeAnn Moore, and Michelle Goodner, who are all now connected to worldwide network of teachers that want to see more students develop a passion for STEM. The five Grandview teachers will continue their collaborative work this year partnering with Prep KC and 19 other teachers from KC area school districts.
This spring we are excited to kick off our first Community Academy class! Community Academy is our way to help provide opportunities for local community members, other organizations to become partners in addressing educational and community needs.
