ROLE MODEL: English instructor Ms. Kirkman reflects on female role models, “One of my female role models growing up was teacher Christa McAuffliffe; I was in fifth grade when she died during the Challenger accident. First, it meant a lot to me that she believed teaching was so valuable as an occupation that she put her life on the line, and ultimately lost it, in order to educate students from space. Second, I read an article about her after she died and a quote of hers has always stayed with me: I touch the future. I teach.”
