Region 8 teacher attends space academy in Alabama

PEMISCOT COUNTY, MO (KAIT) - One Region 8 teacher recently attended a program that sent her out of this world.

Janet Compere teaches fifth grade for the North Pemiscot School District and recently won a competitive scholarship with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.

That scholarship allowed Compere to attend the NASA Space Academy in Huntsville, Alabama.

The academy provided 32 hours of intensive classroom, laboratory and training time.

During the program, educators participated in astronaut-style training and simulations, along with activities designed to promote life-long learning.
