Jackie Wheelock has been an important part of the Dalton faculty since 2019. As Humanities and Social Science Coordinator, Jackie is not only passionate about offering the fundamental History courses but also giving students opportunities for hands-on, project-based learning in her Global Challenges and Conflicts course. Similarly, she encourages student-interest driven research and learning in her American History course. Jackie sees her role as a History and Social Science Teacher as an opportunity to arm students with the skills and experiences that social sciences are uniquely capable of introducing to students, which are: the ability to ask questions, develop arguments, and deal with complex, nuanced, and intractable dilemmas. As co- chair, Jackie looks to bring even more collaboration and creativity to the department and to give students more opportunities to explore their interests and passions.
