Westside Educator selected for Transatlantic Outreach program
Westside High School teacher Amy Studts has been selected to participate in the Transatlantic Outreach Program study tour to Germany this summer.
Studts is well known and respected by students at Westside High School and colleagues both at District 66 and throughout her field. Earlier this school year, she was honored with the Gildersleeve-Stoddard-Stone Service to Geography Education Award. The honor is the highest the Geographic Educators of Nebraska (GEON) bestows.
“I am ecstatic and honored to have been accepted into the Transatlantic Outreach Program (TOPS), a two-week study tour of Germany for Social Studies and STEM teachers sponsored by The Goethe Institut, Siemens, Deutsche Bank, and many others,” said Studts. “My goal is to learn more about Germany, specifically the impact of the Syrian refugees. One way I plan to share my new knowledge and cultural experiences is to use technology to connect Westside students and German students as a way to make their world a smaller place.”
Studts will take part in the two-week study tour in Germany from June 1 through June 16th.
