During "Group" on Tuesday in the Gym, Kevin Grady, New England President of the Air Force Association presented Cecelia Carroll with the AFA Teacher of the Year Award. She was honored with a $500 check to be used for STEAM based activities in the classroom as well as an embroidered AFA jacket with her name and title on it! From the AFA: The Air Force Association is dedicated to ensuring America’s aerospace excellence and supports the teachers that carry out this mission in the classroom. AFA supports K-12 teachers who specialize in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM fields). The Air Force Association believes that recognizing those who educate America’s youth is an important aspect of what AFA is all about. AFA chapters nationwide work very hard to insure our youth receive education in math and the sciences and that those who teach and support the educators are recognized. In the past year, Cecelia Carroll has brought a group of her students to Space Camp in Huntsville, AL, led an after school SeaPerch Club and rocketry activity class, attended the Space Exploration Educators Conference in Houston, Texas and participated in Civil Air Patrol workshops for teachers at the Laconia Airport. Congratulations!
