             Welcome to my Web site!                            

Hello and welcome to my website. Living in London again is such a wonderful experience. Michael and I love being back with our friends and love the London nightlife. Since retiring from teaching, I have been keeping my hand in education by performing my space show for children and adults here in Europe. I think I have more fun than the audience. If you know me, than you know that is so true. Love to have fun!

On 12 Mar 2010, I had the special opportunity to meet and shake hands with my HEROES, the Legends of Aerospace (Neil Armstrong- first man to walk on the moon, Gene Cernan - the last man to walk on the moon, Jim Lovell- Apollo 13, Steve Richie- Vietnam Ace, and Bob Gilliland-first to fly the SR-71, the Blackbird.) Imagine an hour of listening to their stories and hanging on to their every word, imaging that you were right there with them on their dangerous journeys. Gene Cernan and BG Richie signed my Space Show book. I will treasure the book forever. It doesn't get any better than that. When Gene Cernan said that we should try and get the children today motivated about space, a big smile came on my face since that is exactly what I do with my space show. General Kevin Chilton, USAF, who completed three space missions with two of them in the Endeavor signed my book: "Sandra, Thank you for this wonderful book and your dedicated efforts to inspire our youth...who of course are our future!! Warmest Regards, Kevin Chilton, Gen. USAF, NASA Astronaut STS 49, 59, & 76."  I look forward to my next show knowing that I am inspiring the children of tomorrow.

                                                     

About my books:  Special thank you to all of my readers and friends who have given me so much support over the past year. Without you, these books would not have been written. You can preview my books, take a peek inside and order them online using credit card or PayPal from the publisher's web site. Contact me if you would like to order autographed copies or pay by personal check. Take a look around my site, enjoy the images from actual shows, and let me know what you think! 

Coming soon,  The Mysterious Footprints, a children's book which was my student teaching final project. It will be a children's story book with illustrated pictures (drawn by me) and there will be a script for teachers to do the play in their classroom. Science concepts are involved in the story.

 

May the force be with you, and see you in space! Warmest Regards, Sandra

Favorite Links for Cool Science Music

Dr. Chocolate Sings    http://www.tranquility.net/~scimusic/

“Adventures in Space" song by Greg & Steve to act out being astronauts * Note - This is a great song to finish the show. The smaller children love it since the song requires them to get out of their seats and move around acting as if they were in space. You will need a large area for them to move.     http://www.allegro-music.com/gregsteve.asp

“MusicSpace” celebrates music that is written for space exploration. Or is about space exploration. Or is played in space. Or makes you feel like you are in space. Or is actually from space.    http://www.hobbyspace.com/Music/index.html#NASAMusic
