Beth Foster was among only 40 middle and high school teachers nationwide chosed to participate in the Siemens Teachers As Researchers (STARs) fellowship program, according to a news release from the Siemens Foundation. The program, which runs from July 8 to July 20, trains educators to bring research into the classrooms and inspire students to pursue science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM).

During the program, Foster and other Stars participants will conduct research alongside leading scientists, the release states. The teachers will also receive a grant to purchase supplies for their classrooms.

Mrs. Foster is an committed educator at Annapolis Middle School, leading the way to get AMS certified as a Green School next year. She's organizing our Community Planting Day at AMS, April 28 from 8:30 - 11 am and keeping our teachers supplied with great resources. Congrats, Mrs. Foster, well deserved!
