We The People Seminar 2009

I have been involved with FLREA organization for the past three years, specifically with two programs; We The People: the Citizen and the Constitution and Project Citizen.  Its goals are to promote and enhance students' understanding of civic education here in Florida, across the nation and the world. 


 I've attended summer workshops and seminars for the past three years and this summer was a bit different.  This summer's seminar ended last week, July 17 and I served as a WTP mentor for the new teachers interested in promoting civic education in their classroom.  I had an interesting educational experience as I worked together with a fantastic group of educators, all accomplished in their own right.


At the end of every civic education workshop or seminar I feel stronger, inspired and committed to doing better work.  And I know that every teacher who participated in the WTP this summer is as devoted and motivated as I am about educating our students the principles of our constitutional democracy.
