Twenty-seven Alaskan elementary school teachers from around the state became students for a week at two of the three sessions of the Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy held in Jersey City, N.J., and Houston this summer. They were chosen from a pool of applicants by their school districts to attend the regional academy in Houston June 18-22.
The teachers who attended the national academy in Jersey City July 22-27, applied through www.sendmyteacher.com. They were chosen from more than 1,000 applicants by a panel of judges from the National Science Teachers’ Association and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
