Erin Warrilow of Dresden Middle School recently received Teacher Recognition from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration April 11.
Mrs. Warrilow is an active educator through the NASA Explorer School, a program that incorporates NASA approved lesson plans for the implementation of STEM related resources and materials. 
Through the NES program, Mrs. Warrilow completed numerous requirements, which qualified her for recognition.
She also received NASA Merit Roll twice for her own lesson submissions through the virtual campus.
She was selected from a great number of highly qualified individuals through a rigorous review process.
As part of the NASA Teacher Recognition, Mrs. Warrilow will be taking part in an all expense paid trip to the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, for the “Extreme Green Summer Research Experience,” which she is the only teacher from Tennessee to be selected.   During the experience, she will be conducting research and analysis in turning saltwater algae into biofuel, and then, learning how to incorporate it into her classroom.   Published in The WCP 5.10.12
