Bergman Receives Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching
WHS science teacher Angela Bergman recently visited the White House as a recipient of the prestigious Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. 

This year’s 108 awardees represented all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity schools. 

Bergman has taught science for 13 years. During this time, she taught Earth Space Online classes, Natural Science, and Biology. For the last eight years, she has taught Earth and Space Science to 10th and 11th graders at Westside High School. As the Earth and Space Science Team Leader, Bergman has written and coordinated the curriculum for the instructors on the team.

WHS Teacher Goes to Space Camp
Judith Stucky, a physics teacher at WHS, recently attended Space Camp at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, NASA’s official Visitor Information Center for the Marshall Space Flight Center. The educational program promotes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), while training students and adults with hands-on activities and missions based on teamwork, leadership and decision-making.
 
Stucky was part of the Space Academy for Educators Program, which is designed for teachers who want to advance education in the STEM fields. She experienced astronaut simulators and took a virtual tour into space. Trainees also followed lesson plans based on NASA content (which is correlated to the National Science Education Standards) and received content and knowledge to pass on to their students in the classroom.

The Westside Little Girl Cheer Clinic is for kids grades Kindergarten through 6th. They will learn cheers at the clinic Sept. 30 and cheer during the football game Oct. 2. For more information and to register, visit our page: Little Girl Cheer Clinic.
