What teachers are saying about our programs …

 

“Many of my students rarely get a chance to travel outside of the state (Iowa), let alone the East Coast. The pictures, videos, resources, and information I am able to bring back to the classroom gives them insight about historical sites that they otherwise would not gain. I believe as an educator it is important to be a lifelong learner and I try to model that for my students.” 

— Chad O. of Iowa, 2019 participant of Revolution and Rebellion program


“I was humbled when I attended the workshop for the Medal of Honor Character Development Program. (The curriculum) will allow me to assist my students in understanding what the Medal of Honor represents and the characteristics needed to make decisions in any situation, as well as afford me the chance to delve more deeply into parts of history that are given very minimal attention in the current history standards.”

— Tomacine C. of Virginia, a 2019 participant of the Medal of Honor Legacy: Cold War program



“The examining of major events in U.S. History related to the War on Terror greatly enhanced my knowledge, and the seminar illustrated the sacrifice of individuals like the Medal of Honor Recipients who have given everything so we may be free.”

— Richard V. of California, 2018 participant of the Medal of Honor: War on Terror program


“Walking the Edmund Pettus’ bridge, learning the meaning of the symbolism of the lynching memorial at the Museum for Peace and Justice, and getting a tour of the Civil Rights Institute from a local 15-year-old are experiences I would never had without the generosity of Freedoms Foundation.”

— Lynette W. of Kansas, 2018 participant of the Civil Rights program


“I love history and teach it every day. My students are able to see my excitement and it does rub off. Because of people like you I am able to bring back great ideas, resources, pictures and even more excitement.”

— Todd P. of Nebraska, 2018 participant of the American Revolution North program
