Midvalley Elementary’s Space Station Contact Profiled in National Magazine

Midvalley Elementary students’ contact with the International Space Station is featured in the October 2010 edition of QST magazine, the official journal of the American Radio Relay League, the national association for Amateur Radio.

Midvalley’s contact with the International Space Station was made through ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station), a program sponsored by NASA, the American Radio Relay League, and the Radio Amateur Satellite Corp. In the 10 minutes the space station orbited overhead on Dec. 2, 2009, sixth-grade students talked with astronauts about the wonders of space. Principal Carla Burningham, with the help of the Utah Amateur Radio Club and Midvalley teacher David Bettinson, worked nearly two years to line up the event.

ARISS aims to inspire students to pursue studies in science, technology, engineering and math through the discovery of spaceflight and the use of amateur radio. With help from Amateur Radio clubs and ham radio operators, ARISS has contacted more than 500 schools around the world.

The monthly QST magazine is the most widely read Amateur Radio publication in the country, according to its Web site. It was founded in 1915.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
