Two RHS Teachers Selected for Prestigious Summer Courses

April 8, 2019

RHS science teacher, Tessa Spraetz, received The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) Science Ambassador Fellowship award. This program is the only of its kind offered by CDC for teachers and educational leaders interested in bringing public health sciences into middle– and high– school classrooms. This competitive fellowship includes a 5–day summer course at CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, and a 1–year distance–based professional development opportunity.

RHS social studies teacher, Jessica Kaspar, received The Street Law's 2019 Supreme Court Summer Institute award. This teacher professional development institute brings a select group of high school social studies teachers to Washington, DC, for an immersive six days of educational activities related to teaching about the U.S. Supreme Court. Teachers participate in sessions led by Supreme Court experts, journalists, and lawyers. The Institute covers six current (or recent cases) and prepares teachers to use innovative methods to teach about both current and historical cases. This exciting opportunity culminates with a visit to the Court to hear decisions handed down and a reception at the Court.
