About the Teacher:
Jackie Spring graduated from Virginia Tech in 2005, earning a degree in History with concentrations in German Language and Political Science, before attending Rider University to obtain a teaching certificate in Social Studies. After student-teaching at WHS, she joined the faculty as a full-time teacher in 2007. She was initially drawn to Project '79 by the program's commitment to engage students in authentic ways; the teachers' dedication to finding the best methods to bring content to life for all kinds of learners cemented her desire to be a member. From 2009 to 2015 she taught Project '79 Global Perspectives and U.S. II while leading our technology initiative to support teaching and learning. In the fall of 2015, Mrs. Spring began her tenure as Project '79 Coordinator.
