Teaching and learning go hand-in-hand for Lisle 202 staff. Many of our educators spend their summers participating in professional development to learn, grow, improve their craft and enhance their skills. One example is Lisle High School Civics teacher, Chris Jaegle.
This June, Mrs. Jaegle traveled to Washington, D.C. to attend the prestigious Supreme Court Summer Institute. After a highly competitive application process, Mrs. Jaegle was one of only 60 teachers selected to participate this year. The Institute, open to teachers in the fields of law-related and civic education, is co-sponsored by Street Law, Inc. and the Supreme Court Historical Society.
During her time in Washington, D.C., Mrs. Jaegle had the opportunity to study recent Supreme Court cases in detail and learn innovative teaching methods for conveying this information to students. Well-known Supreme Court lawyers, reporters, scholars, and educators were among the speakers and instructors for the Institute. "It was an amazing experience where I was able to attend the Supreme Court for opinions and met Justice Sotomayer at a reception," Mrs. Jaegle recounted, "My civics teacher geek level was at an all-time high!"
Lisle 202 is proud of Mrs. Jaegle for her acceptance into this tremendous program. #LionProud
