6 teach Advanced Placement courses
4 worked with the CSU Center for Public History and Digital Humanities or use the Cleveland Historical app in their classes

All are excellent teachers!
Our special thanks go to Elizabeth Noren, Justin Hons and Joe Petit who also participated in a Teacher Roundtable event for Social Studies majors and offered their perspectives on content, pedagogy and careers in Social Studies education. Look for future events like this on the blog!
Year two of our Teacher Spotlight kicks off on April 1 with Deanna Mikin of North Royalton Middle School!
