Mukwonago teacher Kellie Arenz selected to take part in Space Academy

WEAC Region 7 member Kellie Arenz, a STEM teacher at Park View Middle School in Mukwonago, has been selected to attend the 2017 Honeywell Educators at Space Academy in Huntsville, Alabama.

Created in partnership with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, this professional development program is designed to help middle school math and science teachers from around the world become more effective educators in science, technology, engineering, and math. Educators are empowered with supplemental teaching techniques through simulated astronaut training and innovative educational tools that help bring science to life in the classroom.

Kellie is featured in an article in, which notes that only 400 educators from 55 countries are chosen each year for the week-long academy, and says Kellie is ecstatic about the opportunity.

“I heard about the Honeywell Educator Space Academy two years ago from a friend, and I knew right away I wanted to explore the chance to go,” said Arenz. “I applied last September and when word came early this year that I had been selected, I couldn’t believe it. I was thrilled.”
