Years into my teaching I saw a brief presentation about Dudley Observatory and their outreach program, "Rising Star Internship". Once I was accepted to this program I worked with other teachers to assemble my own telescope. This immediate "hands-on" involvement made be familiar with the telescope and how it works. I teach in a small, rural school district. The telescope I received from Dudley has allowed me to be active with my school district. I have been to a number of homes in the community to teach small groups of students about the planets, stars and telescopes. From Dudley, I also received background information and reference material to help guide me in my education. Dudley has given me the tools with which to work on the New York State and National Science Standards. Through my work with the Dudley Observatory many more children and adults have experienced the night sky.
