C-SPAN Bus To Visit Tate High School To Recognize Social Studies Teacher

December 4, 2018

The C-SPAN bus will visit Tate High School Wednesday to recognize Tate teacher Robin Blalock,  who was recently named Florida’s social studies teacher of the year.

C-SPAN’s state-of-the-art, 45-foot customized motor coach is traveling south and embarking on a Top Teachers Tour through Florida, South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee. In partnership with Cox Communications, the C-SPAN Bus will stop at Tate to open its doors to engage students, community members and elected officials through interactive demonstrations of C-SPAN’s multi-platform public service resources.

The bus is visiting teachers who have been selected by their state social studies associations for their commitment to excellence and leadership in the field.

“We are honored to recognize the work of these outstanding social studies educators,” said Craig McAndrew, C-SPAN Education Relations manager. “We hope to support their continued efforts in developing civically engaged youth.”

The high tech, interactive C-SPAN Bus includes:
•Access to an exclusive interactive experience available on 11 large-screen tablets featuring C-SPAN programming and myriad of political and educational resources
•A smart TV and classroom area for conversations with students and teachers
•A high-definition TV production studio for taped and live programming
•A 360-degree video station featuring C-SPAN’s unfiltered coverage of high-profile events and insightful, behind-the-scenes tours of U.S. landmarks
•A Washington, D.C.-themed selfie station where visitors can share their bus experiences through social media

Blalock was selected as this year’s Dr. Theron Trimble Florida Teacher of the Year Award by the state’s social studies teachers’ association.
