    Ultimately, it's what happens in the classroom that counts! A fact that was reflected in the many tributes offered on November 17, 2011 during the Inland Empire Council for the Social Studies (IECSS) Annual Awards' Dinner held on
    campus at California State University, San Bernardino. The IECSS recognized twelve teachers, including Susan Myers from Chapparel High School for ability to engage students in high levels of learning with rigorous and meaningful
    interaction with primary sources.

    A collaborative event sponsored by the Inland Empire Council for the Social Studies (IECSS), Riverside County Office of Education, San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, and CSUSB, the awards dinner provides recognition for elementary, middle, and high school teachers who inspire and engage their students, in learning the state curriculum, promote advanced history-social science thinking, and show leadership within and beyond their schools. Such a teacher is Mark Zavodnik of Murrieta Elementary School, who attended the Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute and brought the Walk Through the American Revolution to his fifth grade class, and so is Anita Tucker of Victor Valley High School, whose students participate yearly in National History Day.

    Leslie Smith, H-SS Coordinator at San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, presented awards to outstanding San Bernardino County teachers: Patricia Abney, Quail Valley Middle School; Connie Johnson, Academy for Academic Excellence; Brian Lamers, Excelsior Education Center; and Gerry Wright, Arroyo Valley High School, and Anita Tucker of Victor Valley High School.



    In addition to Susan Myers and Mark Zavodnik, Brad Shearer also recognized Riverside County awardees: Louise Berkley, Victoria Elementary; Aurelio Cortez, Vista Heights Middle School; Kent Byer, Earhart Middle School; Edward "Eddie" Jones, Poly High School; Kory Bootsma, Rancho Verde High School; and Kurt Herbst, Great Oak High School.




    The theme for this year's event reflected the 2012 CCSS Conference theme: "Social Studies to the Core," visualized
    with a globe's cross section showing the earth's layers. In keeping with this interpretation, Professor Kevin Grisham,
    provided an inspiring and thought-provoking keynote titled, "You in the World-Social Studies Education in a Global Age."
