Boggs Selected for World War II Teacher Workshop

Congratulations to Live Oak Academy Special Ed teacher, Caroline Boggs, who earlier this month was selected as the 2024-2025 cohort of the World War II Classroom Summer Teacher Workshop! Boggs will take part in the workshop, which will be held July 21-27 at The National World War II Museum in New Orleans, LA. Boggs said only two seminars are offered through this program each summer, and she was exposed to this museum through a women's history conference near Philadelphia. It was at that conference where she met Mae Grier, one of the last living Rosie the Riveters from World War II. She then was invited to meet Susan King, another of the last living Rosie the Riveters, at the WW II Museum during a Veterans Day ceremony this past November. “Because of this experience, I was introduced to the museum’s education department and they invited me to apply this summer. I did, and I got in,” said Boggs. We are incredibly excited for Boggs and this amazing opportunity she will take part in.
