Horizon Middle School East Math Teacher, Dianna Christianson, is inspired by Katherine Johnson. Dianna says, “I love that she started out her career as a math teacher. When she was first hired by NASA, she was a "computer" making manual calculations mostly from data from the black boxes of planes. But her curiosity is what helped her move up in her job. (I think this is so important for students - always ask questions!) She later used geometry skills to figure out the trajectory for astronauts to orbit Earth and land on the moon.” #WomensHistoryMonth
