"We are loving sharing our fellowship with students. I already had one student travel to Philadelphia because of how much I talked about my experience there and I have another student going to Williamsburg over fall break because of my lessons, photos, and stories from there! I love seeing my students so excited about Social Studies and wanting to turn their typical beach trip into a Early Colonial American History trip! Some have even started a Travelpod like we used on our trip, to track their own personal trips now. This experience has forever changed my heart.”
Jamie Tipton (Normal Park Magnet School - Chattanooga, TN) and Lori Tipton (Walker Valley High School - Cleveland, TN) designed their Fund for Teachers fellowhship to retrace Colonial American sites along the east coast to examine, from varying perspectives, the ramifications of events and decisions on people past and present.
