George Lucas Educational Foundation

Katie Piper

High School Social Studies Teacher, Bellevue, Washington

I teach a project-based AP Government course at my public high school, that I had the chance to develop in partnership with the George Lucas Education Foundation, and some great colleagues. This year I am adapting that course for a regular Government class. I really enjoy working collaboratively and getting a chance to learn from other great teachers.

I have two young daughters that take up a great deal of my time currently, and teach me more all the time about learning and development!
