Wedgwood Elementary teacher Ashley Cox will be heading to the Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy in New Jersey this summer. Cox, along with Laurelhurst Elementary teacher Grace Dublin, will join about 200 third- through fifth-grade teachers from around the country.
A little about the academy from Seattle Public Schools:
The Teachers Academy – started by pro golfer Phil Mickelson and his wife, Amy – is a free, weeklong camp just for teachers in which they learn about math and science through fun experiments. They will share their experiences with students in the classroom when they return. The teachers will be joined by math and science experts from the National Science Teachers Association and Math Solutions, who teach at the Academy.
