Katherine Rand has been a member of IECSS and CCSS throughout her tenure as a classroom teacher. Mrs. Rand currently teaches AP Government and Politics, Economics, and 8th Grade Social Studies at Cobalt Institute of Math and Science in Victorville, California.
With over 28 years of teaching experience, Mrs. Rand has been an active participant in both local, county, regional, and state organizations whose mission has been to promote and support classroom teachers and the inclusion of History/Social Science instruction across the state.
Mrs. Rand has previously served as a Region 10 Board member for CCSS during the past several years and has also served as co-chair on the Government Relations and Partnership Development committee and as the Board Liason to the Membership and Outreach committee this past year.
Mrs. Rand has twice been the recipient of the Teacher of Excellence Award by the Inland Empire Council for Social Studies and has actively participated on the Government Relations and Partnership Development and Conference committees for the past six years.
As a Social Studies educator of over 28 years and a long-time advocate for excellence in teaching History/Social Science, it would be my honor to continue to serve the teachers across the state and in the Southern Regions as the Southern Area Vice President of CCSS for the upcoming term.
I look forward to continuing to support the members of local and regional Social Studies/History organizations as they work to support teachers and students in their communities.
Now more than ever it is essential that we work together for the promotion of teaching History/Social Science in K12 classrooms across the state. I would very much like to continue the important work of CCSS in the support of students and teachers throughout California.
