Joan Soldano is the recipient of the 2014 New York State Air Force Association's Teacher of the Year Award

Joan Soldano is the recipient of the 2014 New York State Air Force Association's Teacher of the Year Award. In the spring, she was awarded the Air Force Association's Long Island Chapter Teacher of the Year. Joan was selected for going above and beyond her typical school day to promote science, engineering, mathematics and engineering (STEM) to students in the Patchogue-Medford School District. Joan is the advisor of two First Lego League robotics teams, Oregon's Space Club, and an Air Force Association's national CyberPatriot team. This past summer, Joan spent two weeks in Trinidad as a faculty member for Inspiring Educational Systems, who hosted an aerospace themed STEM camp for over 400 Trinidad students and teachers. In March, Joan will be presenting a 90 minute workshop at the upcoming ASSET Conference (Association for Suffolk Supervisors for Educational Technology) in coordination with the Challenger Learning Center. In April, four time shuttle astronaut Don Thomas will be skyping with Oregon's Space Club students and, in May, her students will be participating in the e-Missions program entitled, "Target Moon." Let's wish Joan luck, as she is now in the competition for the 2015 National Air Force Association's Teacher of the Year​!
