Biology Student
San Francisco State University
Spaceward Bound Mojave 2008

Hello everyone. My name is Stephanie Cunningham and I am biology major here at SFSU. I expect to graduate with my degree in spring of 2009 and plan to enter SFSU’s secondary education teaching credential program at that time.

I heard about the Mojave Spaceward Bound Expedition through the Math and Science Teachers Initiative fellowship program of which I am a fellow member. I feel that this expedition is a wonderful opportunity for those, like me, who share a passion for science and desire to teach science. I am looking forward to participating in the field research that this expedition offers and foresee this experience as one that I’ll eventually draw upon in the classroom. What an exciting and adventurous way to learn!

I am looking forward to meeting everyone and learning more about those of you who I will be sharing this exciting trip with. A few factoids about myself: I live with my fiancé and our two cats in the north bay. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, camping, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family. Finally, I hope to teach high school biology in the Bay area in the near future.
