Lisa Cerulli notices the reactions she gets when she tells people about her job. And her goal is to change that perception starting with the next generation.
“When you tell people our age that you teach social studies, they tend to remember it as one of their least favorite school subjects because they found it boring,” Cerulli said. “They remember it as a list of dates and places that they had to memorize. I always tell them ‘It’s too bad you didn’t have the teachers I had.’”
