Congratulations to Anderson High School teacher, Cary House. Cary spent the past year researching the life of Private First Class Worth H. Jackson as part of the “Understanding Sacrifice Program.” On November 11, 2016, Mr. House’s eulogy for Private First Class Worth H. Jackson along with his lesson plan, titled “Taking the High Ground: Overcoming Monte Cassino and the Gustav Line”, will be published on ABMCeducation.org.
This year long professional development program focused on fallen heroes of World War II buried or memorialized at an ABMC cemetery in Southern Europe and North Africa. In July, 2016, House joined 17 other educators who traveled throughout the southern regions of Europe. Using their research, teachers created lesson plans, Fallen Hero profiles and eulogies honoring the heroes of WWII.
Mr. House believes that education should be visual, engaging, entertaining and interactive. His philosophy of teaching is to make history come alive. As a teacher he strives to connect the curriculum with the student on a personal level.
In a media release, Anderson Community School Corp said, “Please join us in congratulating Mr. House on his dedication to his students as well as all the brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country.”
