As a middle school science teacher, I received their Eleanor Roosevelt Fellowship and $15,000 to have a wonderful afterschool science club for girls. They continued as confident and science loving high school and college students! I also taught in the first CA Tech Trek for Girls at Stanford.

It grew to 8 other college sites and I've taught at the San Diego campus and the Whittier campus for 5 more years. AAUW has made a tremendous difference in my life as a teacher and as a woman.
