Science teacher Cinnamon Baldwin chosen to participate in LiftOff Summer Institute at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston

The Honor Roll School in Sugar Land is pleased to announce that Ms. Cinnamon Baldwin, a science teacher for fifth and sixth grades at the school, was selected from across the nation for the prestigious LiftOff Summer Institute professional development program, which was held at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The weeklong program featured a series of workshops, hands-on activities, field trips and presentations by NASA scientists and engineers working on various missions. Selected educators came together in Houston to conduct experiments, tour facilities and network with other educators while sharing innovative lesson plans and ideas. LiftOff workshops proved the excitement teachers and students feel about space science and demonstrated how exploration can be tapped to enrich learning in science, math, engineering and technology. The workshops also provided teachers the rare opportunity to spend a week working with professional scientists and engineers at the cutting edge of space exploration.

“We are honored that one of our teachers was selected for this unique opportunity,” said Emily Castanedo, Principal of The Honor Roll School. “We are very proud of Ms. Baldwin and know that she will be able to share this incredible learning experience with our students.”
