Ms. Lori Flippin

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education-Social Studies, from Newman University, in 2000.   My Master of Arts in Teaching the Social Sciences was awarded from Emporia State University in 2008.

My teaching career began at North Beloit High School located on the Beloit Juvenile Correctional Facility, formerly Youth Center at Beloit campus. From December 2000 to December 2003 I taught all the Social Science courses. Also during this time, I taught an outreach Introduction to Sociology course for Cloud County Community College, Concordia, Kansas.

I began teaching with the Lawrence Public School district in August 2004, with my first assignment at the Lawrence Alternative High School teaching U.S. History, Geography, and Senior Social Studies. I began my tenure at Lawrence High School in August, 2005, and I currently teach U.S. History and Modern World History.

I firmly believe that when students do history, rather than study history they become more engaged in the lesson, retain information longer, and genuinely enjoy the learning process. Throughout my career I have been able to amass an array of historical primary and secondary resources and artifacts that I currently use in my classroom. This has made the study of history tangible for my students and subsequently awakened their desire to learn more. My classroom is often noisy, my students are excited, and it may appear chaotic to some, but my students interact and do history and I nurture their enthusiasm whenever I can. I am grateful to be a teacher and am so appreciative to experience the numerous personal and professional rewards I witness everyday as I see students envelop the joy of learning.
