#ThankATeacherPBC Thursday: Dreyfoos Teacher Named American Geographical Society Fellow

Alexander W. Dreyfoos Jr. School of the Arts teacher Sara Stout is world-class, and she now has the credential to prove it!

 Ms. Stout has been named a 2017 AGS Geography Teacher Fellow by the American Geographical Society (AGS), joining just fifty teachers from across the United States in achieving this prestigious honor. As part of the award for being selected as an AGS Geography Teacher Fellow, she’ll attend the AGS Fall Symposium on November 16 and 17, 2017 at Columbia University in New York City. The Symposium provides Teacher Fellows with the opportunity to gain valuable cutting-edge content knowledge and awareness of the real-world geographic workplace skills demanded by today’s geospatial companies.

The AGS Fall Symposium is one of the most important and recognized geography/geospatial events in North America. Attendees include CEOs and senior executives from preeminent geospatial companies along with leading experts and representatives from government, not-for-profits, and academia.

Ms. Stout teaches Advanced Placement (AP) Human Geography at Dreyfoos School of the Arts.
