Shirley became involved with NASA through the NASA Educator Workshop in Houston during the summer of 2000, and the following year was trained in the Teacher Academy Project with the National Space Biomedical Research Institute. She started as a Solar System Ambassador in 2003, became a Solar System Educator, and is also a New Horizons Fellow.
