Baker teacher recognized for STEM work

Published: Monday, April 8, 2013 at 04:19 PM.

For instance, Burlison had created a murder mystery, in which students must use physics knowledge to solve the crime.

 "I am one of those cooky teachers," she said. "I try to keep it entertaining."

In addition to receiving a plaque from the Hurlburt chapter, Burlison will receive a $250 donation. The school will receive the same amount as a grant.

 Burlison plans to use the money toward her classroom, which she said could use an iPad. The tablet would further students’ technology-based education.

She also will receive a one-year membership to the AFA, which includes a one-year subscription to Air Force Magazine and full access to the organization’s many resources. The local AFA could link area teachers to Air Force engineers or personnel who could come to the school and speak to the students.

"As a chapter, we recognize elementary, middle and high school teachers," said John Jogerst, a Hurlburt officer. "We recognize these teachers who impact their students."
