What is a Teacher Liaison?

Teacher Liaisons are extraordinary educators who use space-related education programs and principles in the classroom to act as advocates for space-based education in their schools and districts. If selected for the program, they receive Space Foundation training and resources to further integrate space into their classrooms. The program is open to public, private and homeschool teachers, as well as school administrators, principals, specialists, curriculum and instruction developers and others who deliver education programs to students.

Started in 2004, this prestigious, internationally recognized program provides an honored few benefits and privileges that improve teaching skills, strengthens resumes and influences space and science education at an international level. More than 250 educators from throughout the world are active Teacher Liaisons.

We select a new flight of Teacher Liaisons each December. Once selected, Teacher Liaisons may remain active in the program as long as they continue to meet requirements for using and advocating for space-based education in their classrooms or schools.

Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons serve as active links between the Space Foundation and their schools and school districts and often work with other space organizations, such as NASA.
