My name is Jen Lindsay and I've been awarded the most amazing Fellowship from Fund for Teachers!  I am traveling to London and Stratford-Upon-Avon in July 2017 to walk in the footsteps of my favorite poet and playwright, "Bill the Bard."  

Fund for Teachers is a national organization that sponsors teachers who want to extend their learning to benefit students!  Please learn more about this organization and life-changing opportunity here:  www.fundforteachers.org.

On my journey, I will explore the social and economic times in which William Shakespeare lived by visiting various historic sites.  I plan to learn more about King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I, as well as the general population of the time.  I will spend time on the Thames, at various London landmarks (Whitehall Palace, Holy Trinity Church), and in Stratford-Upon-Avon--  Shakespeare's birthplace-- itself! While in Stratford-Upon-Avon, I will visit Mary Arden's Farm where the bard's mother grew up, and see homes where he and his family lived 400 years ago!

Join me on this incredible trip as I Walk in the Footsteps of Shakespeare.
