Bridgeway Elementary School reading specialist Erica Parsell was recognized as an outstanding Space Station Ambassador and invited to attend the 2019 International Literary Conference as an honored guest of the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory.

Parsell's contributions to the Space Station Ambassador community earned her the invitation to conference, where she showcased ISS National Lab education initiatives at the Space Station Explorers booth.

The Space Station Explorers consortium is a growing community of ISS National Lab partner organizations working to leverage the unique platform of the ISS to provide valuable educational experiences. More than 600 adult educators, leaders and life-long learners from across the United States serve as Space Station Ambassadors, gaining access to educational tools and a means to connect with like-minded space enthusiasts.

Parsell's experience with the ambassador program allows her to connect science to a love of reading for students at Bridgeway. She also shares her knowledge with educators across the nation, including at the 2019 National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) conference.
