Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Denise Zigler Denise Ann Zigler has been a teacher of gifted and talented students for 13 plus years and 22 years altogether in the field of educational instruction. She has taught at NASA-SEMAA, at Tennessee State University.

Over the past two years she helped create the gifted Practicum at Middle Tennessee State University.

Denise aspired to be the first teacher in space. And then through flowing tears, she watched the space shuttle Challenger.

Denise received her Masters in Education, Administration and Supervision from Middle Tennessee State University, August, 2012. She received her Bachelors Degree from Wayland Baptist College, June, 1978. Her family includes her husband, three sons and a grandson.
