Standout Spartan: Upper School Social Studies Teacher Eliza McGehee
The Steward School
Scholarship recipient spends the summer abroad
Summer 2022 was extra special for Upper School Social Studies Teacher Eliza McGehee, who attended the History, Politics, and Society Summer School at Oxford University as a TLab (Travel and Learn Abroad) Scholarship Recipient from the Richmond Branch of the English-Speaking Union.
As part of the program, Ms. McGehee took seminars on Refugees, States, and Borders Since 1918 and European Politics and Institutions. She also attended daily lectures from Oxford professors about a variety of both historical and contemporary issues. In her free time, she saw “King Lear” at the Globe Theatre and toured the British Museum and Churchill War Rooms.
“It was an inspiring experience, and I learned so much from the lectures and seminars as well as from my fellow classmates, who were students and teachers from all over the world,” shared Ms. McGehee, who also serves as program coordinator of Steward’s Leadership program. “I am excited to incorporate what I learned into my classes this year, particularly my AP World History classes. After having the program canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19, I was extremely grateful for the opportunity to participate this summer.”
