Teacher from Kenosha studying culture of Mississippi Delta

(June 14, 2019)

Summer is getting started, but that isn’t stopping a Kenosha resident from continuing his work as a teacher.

Andrew Levin, a teacher at Grayslake North High School, was selected as a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Scholar and given the opportunity to travel to the Mississippi Delta to study different aspects of the region.

The summer program runs from July 7-13 and is hosted by Delta State University in Cleveland, Miss.

Levin teaches multiple subjects including social sciences, math and special education, with one of his classes being sociology, and will have the opportunity to learn about subjects such as geography and history that he can bring into his own lessons.

“When I realized all of the ways that this can be connected to my teaching, I realized that this was for me,” Levin said.
