CMS teacher to attend summer seminar

Each summer, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History offers academically rigorous teacher seminars for K–12 educators. These highly competitive one-week seminars are open exclusively to participants in Gilder Lehrman’s free Affiliate School Program. J.O. Combs Middle School is proud to announce that Ms. Emily Hubbard completed the rigorous application and has been selected to attend the seminar titled, The American Revolution, which will take place on July 3–9 at Columbia University.

Ms. Hubbard currently serves as the social studies department chair and teaches eighth grade social studies. She is also the moderator of the National Junior Honor Society chapter at CMS. At this seminar, participants will consider two different American revolutions: the struggle for American self-determination from 1763 to 1783 and the ongoing struggle for liberty and equality enunciated in the Declaration of Independence. The institute will be covering the three graduate credit hours cost, room accommodations, and travel expenses for Ms. Hubbard.

The Queen Creek Independent is mailed each month to 35,000 homes.
