Webb City teacher chosen for White House History Teachers Institute

News

The White House Historical Association hosts the White House History Teacher Institute every year.

WEBB CITY, Mo. – 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the best known address in the country and now a Webb City teacher can share a firsthand perspective with her history students.

Linda Uselmann was one of just 60 teachers from across the U.S. chosen for the White House History Teacher Institute. She learned about the background of the massive building and got to tour it, a visit that included spaces not usually open to the public. Uselmann says it was a priceless opportunity.

“It’s not just the President’s house, but it’s also a business place and it’s also a museum.”

Uselmann estimates she took thousands of pictures during her trip, images she’ll share with her students when school kicks off next week.
