Social Science Teacher Selected for Prestigious Summer Seminar on First Amendment

Congratulations to social science teacher Ms. Natalie Robinson on her selection to the prestigious National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Scholars program! Robinson is one of 462 teachers nationwide selected to participate in these federally funded seminars, which allow K-12 teachers to study with leading experts in their fields of study. The impact of the program is vast: the 462 NEH Summer Scholars who attend will teach almost 68,000 students next school year.

Robinson will participate in a seminar entitled “The First Amendment in 21st Century America.” Directed by the University of Pennsylvania’s Rendell Center for Civics and Civic Engagement, the week-long program will be held this July at The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

“I am very much looking forward to learning about the present-day application of the First Amendment from nationally recognized scholars and researchers,” Robinson said. “With our ever-changing society, I am interested in how the interruption of the Constitution reflects on the growing use of social media and how that impacts everyone, especially our students.”

Robinson is in her third school year at St. Thomas More and teaches US History and World History to sophomores and freshmen. Last year, she traveled to China with Mrs. Pat Hasek to promote STM’s participation in the Wisconsin International Academy, which allows STM to enroll about 30 Chinese students each year. She also moderates Student Council, playing a huge role in the organization and planning of prom, homecoming, and numerous school-wise fundraisers and events.

STM is proud of Ms. Robinson and can’t wait to hear about her week in in Philadelphia!

    The Masters of Iron wall is back at STM! Previously, these records were painted on bricks in the old weight room. The wall was painted during facility upgrades, but the hard work and dedication of our student athletes remains.

    The individuals who earned their names on this wall were able to meet one of more of the following requirements:

    Males: Bench - 200lbs / Squat - 315lbs / Clean - 200lbs
    Females: Bench - 125lbs / Squat - 175lbs / Clean - 125lbs
