The 2012-13 academic school year is history. But during the summer, some Polk County Public Schools’ history teachers are preparing for next year by taking advantage of opportunities for professional development.
For example, Marcia Baali who attends Gause Academy will be in attendance to learn about history and culture that created the colonial city of St. Augustine and to explore why the historic city is often overlooked in the study of U.S. colonial history. And, Bartow International Bacalaurete history teacher Ted Wright is currently in Iran to learn about Middle Eastern culture and history.
