Recently, the Ventura County Star published an article highlighting a great local educator; Bonnie Walters.
Bonnie now works at the California Oil Museum in Santa Paula and is doing great work making science come alive for students, teachers, and learners of all ages.
In past years, it was my fortune to work with her as a parent volunteer and NASA ambassador. Ms. Walters worked in many areas to bring hands on and minds on science to students and teachers and community.
She’s a great example of a community member, natural teacher, and highly intelligent and energetic contributor to a community of learners.
Partnerships with folks like Bonnie help to connect professional teachers and schools with resources and perspectives that reach beyond the walls and halls of the school and classroom. At Rio we have already begun to take advantage of new partnerships with the California Oil Museum. and with the fine work of Ms.Walters. Bravo Bonnie!
