The goals of ACER’s Education Team include communicating the importance of the northern Gulf of Mexico and the excitement of learning through research to K-12 students.

To help us achieve that goal, we have enlisted the help of several science teachers from our local school systems. The members of our Advisory group include Desi Bishop, Jeanell Calhoun, Jennifer Jaynes, Kristen Perez, Nellie Shiver, and Mobile County Public School Science Supervisor, Stephanie LeGrone. These ladies teach a variety of subjects including physical science, chemistry, biology, environmental science and marine science at the middle or high school level. While we may know the science and research results, these ladies work day in and day out with students and know the best ways to get them excited about science and help them learn. We very much appreciate the assistance of these great teachers in the ACER project!
