Biographical Text

(Project Director) Eleanor Greene earned a B.A. with High Honors in History from the University of Rochester (1965), and received an M.A. in Teaching History from Yale University (1969) and an M.S. in Conflict Analysis and Resolution from George Mason University. Greene taught a wide range of American history courses for more than 20 years in middle and high school, including schools in Northern Virginia. She recently worked with elementary teachers and historians to design a pilot curriculum for Virginia history based on the Laurel Grove School. Greene has successfully worked with teachers to improve their content mastery and develop effective strategies first by supervising student teachers in cooperation with teacher training programs at both the University of Maryland and George Washington University, and in the last year she initiated and co-facilitated a Mentor Teacher Program for seven Washington, D.C. public charter schools. She was project director for a two-year, $300,000 federal School Action Grant that included intensive teacher training and on-site staff development.
