Lindsey Bates

History (Middle/High School)

Lindsey grew up in New Hampshire and majored in History and Secondary Education at Wheaton College (MA). She also studied European History and Spanish at the University of Córdoba in Spain. For the past fourteen years, she has taught World and U.S. History at the middle and high school levels. She has brought students on cultural exchange trips across the globe to Italy, Greece, and China, and has coached student contenders at the National History Day Competition in Washington, DC. Her favorite part of her job is watching students expand their perspective as global learners and tackle challenging questions such as: "Whose story is it?" Lindsey’s educational philosophy is rooted in project-based and inquiry-led learning. Her students have worked alongside local historical societies to curate their own museum exhibits that include real-life historical documents and artifacts. A strong advocate for social-emotional learning in education, Lindsey is currently a graduate student at Antioch University studying clinical mental health. In her spare time she enjoys watercolor painting, journaling, and spending time outdoors with her family.
