Liberty Elementary science teacher Kimberly Boucher recently was selected for Endeavor, a  NASA project to help improve student performance in science.
Fifty participants are chosen annually from a nation-wide pool for the program. Boucher applied last summer.
“Honestly,” Boucher said, “I never thought that I would be selected.  I was shocked when I got the call in December that I had been chosen.” 
Boucher will take a year-long course of study online, with courses that are taught by expert instructors and scientists.  At the end of the year, she will be awarded a certificate in science, technology, engineering and mathematics education from Teachers College, Columbia University.
 “I am very excited to be a NASA Endeavor Fellow and I hope to learn more about STEM education.  This is an awesome opportunity to collaborate with scientists and teachers as we design and implement lessons aligned to best practices,” Boucher said.
