At the end of next month I will travel to Atlanta to take part in the annual meeting of the National Council for History Education. This is my first NCHE conference and first year registered as a new member, though I have been following the organization’s work and have utilized some of their teaching resources over the years.

I am very much looking forward to spending time with my fellow history teachers, so if you are planning to attend please seek me out and introduce yourself.

I am also attending having just been appointed to the organization’s board of directors. One of the things that I love about the board’s make up is that it includes a number of working history teachers. It is a huge honor and unexpected surprise. My hope is that I will be able to share and work on some of the things that I am passionate about as a result of my somewhat unusual teaching career path.

See you in Atlanta.

  1. Although, I’m not a teacher (just an interested party in the Civil War era) this appointment appears to be quite an honor and congrats are in order.

  2. Congratulations! This is great news, and, I hope a nod to the importance of public historians, as well as those teaching in schools.
