Mrs. Blough’s Biography – Excerpts from the Space Center Houston Website

Over the past 17 years, Blough had the chance to grow and learn through many educational opportunities. Through all of those years, she experienced many things that affected the way she teaches. Two of her top achievements are taking part in the 2013 Reduced-Gravity Flight Program with two other teachers from CCCS school. She conducted experiments in microgravity that her students had conducted during the school year. Another top achievement was being selected to have students talk to Dr. Kjell Lindgren while he was aboard the International Space Station through an ARISS connection. The student and community involvement in both of these achievements has led to an increased interest of STEM careers and opportunities. She is very excited to be a part of the “Year in Space” to expand the many opportunities for CCCS students. By working with teachers from across the country, she builds a fantastic network of ideas and support. She looks forward to working with exceptional educators with such diverse backgrounds who share the same enthusiasm about STEM as she does.
