Congratulations to the teachers of St. Clair County in Illinois! The St. Clair County Regional Education Office just received a 2009 Teaching American History grant to serve its teachers in grades 4-12.
BHH director Elise Fillpot and lead mentor Kim Heckart will be crossing the Mississippi off and on over the next few years to join in this project. We're excited for the opportunity to explore and learn with a whole new cohort of elementary history teachers. Sending a big woot from Iowa to Illinois!
