Kelsie Brook Eckert ’13G: Engaging and Inspiring Students
I have been writing for Plymouth State University in central New Hampshire (my younger daughter Molly’s alma mater) for several years now. My stories about students, alumni, and campus projects have appeared in the university’s alumni magazine and on its website.
Most recently, I wrote the following piece, and rather than offering it in full here on my site, I am providing the link to read it on the Plymouth State website:
Kelsie Brook Eckert ’13G is constantly pushing herself as a professor. Inspired by the eagerness of her students and the critical need to support teachers to build an educated citizenry, she is a champion for social studies education, which encompasses US history, world history, geography, economics, government, and behavioral sciences. She believes it should be taught from kindergarten through high school graduation, rather than be relegated to middle school, as it too often is.
