Spruce Creek teacher selected as a National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Fellow

Jennie Warmouth, second grade teacher at Spruce Elementary, has been selected as a 2019 National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Fellow. The program is named in honor of Gilbert M. Grosvenor, Chairman Emeritus of the National Geographic Society in recognition of his work supporting grades pre-K through 12 teachers and promoting geography education across the U.S. and Canada.

Warmouth spent spring break at the National Geographic headquarters in Washington D.C., where she spent five days in professional development focused on curricular design, photography, videography, and public speaking training.

Warmouth will depart June 2 for an expedition to Arctic Svalbard where she will join an expedition team of naturalists, National Geographic photographers, underwater experts, and biologists to learn about the polar region. She will bring her experience back to the district and the community in order to both design NGSS aligned curricula, and inspire the next generation of explorers through meaningful, problem-based learning.

Warmouth will remain in a two-year contract with National Geographic to design curricula, provide educational deliverables and to demonstrate educational leadership.

Enrollment for 2020 begins this fall. Applicants must be current grades pre- K through 12 educators, have a proven dedication to geographic education in their teaching field and complete a National Geographic educators certification course.
