Dear Mr. Kelsey

I have collected autographs for over 20 years. When I was in college I started writing to celebrities and asking them what they would tell a class of elementary school students. Over the years I have gotten over 200 letter and signed pictures to my students. I think that by these very busy people taking the time to share their thoughts with students, it shows the power of education. I hope you enjoy my collection

Barbara Morgan

This is a letter that I have wanting to put on here for a while and in the last week has gained an even more special place in my heart. Barbara Morgan was Christa Mcauliffe's backup. She has since become an astronaut and just launched on board the Space Shuttle Endeavor. I was actually a guest of NASA at the launch and got to see it from about 3 miles away. The launch was amazing, especially knowing that there was a teacher on board. To read about the launch, you can check out my other blog, The Room 42 Daily. I wrote to Barbara Morgan when I was in college and I think it is completely fitting that a teacher added notes to a form letter and added a special note at the end. This is absolutely one of my favorite letters in my entire collection.
