New Global Studies Class Offered at Poplin Elementary School
Students at Poplin Elementary are learning more about the world through a new Global Studies class offered each week to all students. Ann Landwehr is Poplin’s new Global Studies Teacher and she began teaching classes in January 2013.
“Students need to be globally competitive for work and postsecondary education,” said Landwehr when asked why it is important to learn about the world.
Students have begun their journey with Landwehr by learning facts about Asia. The students will visit each continent by the end of this school year.
Landwehr, who has taught in Union County for over 25 years, said she enjoys reading, knitting, and visiting the mountains when she is not teaching.
