2013 Teacher Ranger Teacher Program

Melissa Green, a Fairfax County Public Schools Teacher, came to the Mary McLeod Bethune Council House National Historic Site in 2013 through the National Park Service Teacher Ranger Teacher program. While she was with us, she developed two of the lesson plans we now have available to the public: "The Mary McLeod Bethune Virtual Experience" and "Negro League Baseball and its Connection to Mrs. Mary McLeod Bethune."

Ms. Green made a video talking about Mary McLeod Bethune and her experiences as a Teacher Ranger Teacher.
