WASHINGTON – School is out for the summer, but that’s not stopping one Clarendon teacher from hitting the books.
Kimberly Endsley, an American History teacher at Clarendon High School spent three weeks participating in the Presidential Academy for American History and Civics. The program brings together teachers from across the country in a study of pivotal turning points in American history.
Endsley and 59 other educators were surrounded by history during their studies of the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the Civil Rights Movement in Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. during which time Endlsey met with Senator John Boozman.
“We appreciate Kimberly’s passion for teaching American history and finding new and innovative ways to teach this subject to the classroom. Her determination for her students’ success is clear through her participation in this program,” Boozman said.
“Teaching students to be civic minded and where they came from is what American history is all about,” Endsley said after telling Boozman that American history is the great love of her life.
Endsley will begin her fifth year of teaching at Clarendon High School when classes resume in August.
