Two Alachua County Public School teachers, both from the same school, have
earned state honors for their contributions to social studies education.
Howard Bishop Middle School teachers Jamie Morris and Elisa Beachy were
recognized recently by the Florida Council for the Social Studies (FCSS).
Morris, an 8th grade history teacher, won the organization’s 2011
Teaching American History Award. Beachy, a 7th grade geography
teacher, received the J.R. Skretting Outstanding Leadership Award, which
recognizes service to the organization. Both were honored at the recent FCSS
state conference in St. Petersburg. One of Morris’ lesson plans will also be
published in the state’s social studies education journal.
