The Library of Congress Educational Outreach Division is looking for a performing or visual arts teacher to serve as the 2018-19 Teacher in Residence.
I also understand that a lecture, textbook, or slideshow will not engage students in the same way as a primary document. I am thrilled to begin as Teacher in Residence at the Library of Congress for 2017-2018.
The Teacher-in-Residence uses Library of Congress resources to create a project that will benefit their hometown or district in the following school year, and I’ll be developing primary source portfolios for teachers in grades K-2. The Library of Congress will be my home for the next year. I am humbled, eager, and honored to serve in this position.
We know that 2011-2013 Teacher in Residence Earnestine Sweeting is bringing her skills to teachers in her school district as an Instructional Coach. She left behind a number of outstanding blog posts.
Sara Trettin, formerly Suiter, our 2010-2011 Teacher in Residence, was one of the first coordinators for the Teaching with the Library of Congress blog. She wrote and edited some of the first posts and provided a solid framework as we added more writers and continued to shape the blog and its message.
Rebecca Newland, 2013-15 Teacher in Residence, is supporting the needs of faculty and students in a school library. She also continues to contribute to the Library of Congress Poetry Center’s blog, From the Catbird Seat.

Here are a few of Trey’s blog posts on Primary Sources in Science Classrooms.
I would in no way compare myself to Benjamin Franklin–for a number of very good reasons. However, as a newly minted science Teacher in Residence at the Library of Congress, I recognize that reflecting on Franklin, both as man and myth, might help me make sense of the opportunities ahead.
We’re delighted to introduce the Library of Congress 2015-16 Teacher in Residence for audio and visual materials. Since 2000, the Library of Congress has selected an exceptional teacher to advise and collaborate with its educational staff. Tom Bober, a librarian at RM Captain Elementary in Clayton, Missouri, has used primary sources on historical and scientific topics from the Library of Congress to help students construct knowledge.
