Kathleen Koonz, a fifth-grade special education teacher from the Dexter Park Innovation School in Orange, has been selected as an National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Scholar to attend one of 32 summer seminars and institutes supported by the organization.

The National Endowment for the Humanities is a federal agency that, each summer, supports these enrichment opportunities at colleges, universities, and cultural institutions so teachers can study with experts in humanities disciplines.

Koonz will participate in an institute entitled ”Thomas Jefferson: The Public and Private Worlds of Monticello and the University of Virginia.” The two-week program, which will be held at the University of Virginia and Monticello, will be directed by professor Lisa Reilly.

The 30 teachers selected to participate in the program each receive a stipend of $2,100 to cover their travel, study, and living expenses.
