The Connecticut Council for the Social Studies awards committee has announced that a Bethel High School teacher is their 2021 recipient of the Excellence in Social Studies Education Award for the secondary level.  Jennifer Trainor was selected in part due to her dedicated efforts as advisor to both the Model UN and Mock Trial clubs. Her nominator notes, she “not only provides the highest level of instruction for her students, [but] she ensures she meets their social-emotional needs as well.”  Trainor recently received the staff kindness award from students.   In alignment with the National Council for the Social Studies, their mission is to advocate and build capacity for high-quality social studies by providing leadership, services, and support to educators.
