La Cueva Teacher Selected to Study Ancient Roman Writings Abroad

Phyllis “Flip” Knutson, a teacher of the gifted at La Cueva High School, has been selected as a National Endowment for the Humanities summer scholar from a national applicant pool to attend one of 30 summer study opportunities. The Endowment is a federal agency that each summer supports seminars and institutes at colleges and universities so that teachers can study with experts in humanities disciplines.

Knutson will participate in an institute titled, “House of Mortals and Gods: The Study of Ancient Roman Writings in Latin Context.” The first week of the five-week program will be held at College of Notre Dame of Maryland in Baltimore, and then move to Italy for the final four weeks of the program.

The 25 teachers selected to participate in the program each receive a stipend of $3,900 to cover their travel, study and living expenses. About 651 teachers will participate in Endowment-supported seminars and institutes this summer, who will then teach more than 81,000 American students the following year.
