OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma science teacher is bringing first-hand experience from the Gulf of Mexico to her classroom this year.
Jennifer Daftari is a 5th grade science teacher at Jay Elementary. She spent the last two weeks on a fishery cruise aboard the ship "Ocean Two."
She was one of just 30 teachers from across the country participating in NOAA's Teacher at Sea Program.
Daftari says the real life experience will be priceless in the classroom.
