I was involved with a Research Experience for Teachers this year with the UCF Physics department and Center for Microgravity Research. We flew on a Zero-G research flight and now we're analyzing data. The experiment, Strata-2P, is part of a series of experiments designed to understand the properties of Lunar Regolith in microgravity and lunar gravity environments. Also, floating is super fun. Here's our website: https://sites.google.com/view/strata2p-teachersinresidence 

I was also selected for a National Endowment for the Humanities workshop this summer called Space Age on the Space Coast - I'll be out at Kennedy Space Center at the end of July learning with teachers from all disciplines how to teach science and history in new ways. 
I received the Young Alumni Achievement award from my college, Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2019.  I was Magnet Schools of America Region 3 Teacher of the Year in 2017. 
I'm also now a board member for the Student Astronaut Challenge competition - we bring middle and high school students together for a 3-day STEM competition at Kennedy Space Center every year. They participate in five spaceflight related challenges as a team of six. https://studentastronautchallenge.com/
