Two LRSD Teachers Win Competitive Study Opportunity at the Truman Library


Chris Gonterman, Physical Education Teacher at Hall High School, and Vicki Stroud Gonterman, International Studies Specialist at Gibbs International Magnet Elementary School, have both been selected as winners of the Summer Teachers Seminar entitled, “U.S. Presidents and the Middle East: Truman to Obama,” offered by the Truman Library in Independence, Missouri this July. 


The two will attend the weeklong conference, along with teachers selected from across the United States, attend lectures, and utilize the Truman Library’s primary source documents on Presidential Policy Making in the Middle East to create lesson plans. The competitive application process included a personal essay explaining the content and pedagogy that would be utilized in their classroom along with an application and resumé.
