Featured storyteller Kathy Carroll—an educator for over twenty-five years—currently teaches world history and serves as the social studies vertical team chair at St. John’s Episcopal School in Dallas, Texas. Informed by her Master of Humanities degree and graduate certificate in Digital Public Humanities, Kathy believes that language, art, technology, science, religion, geography, and math have impacted the march of history in ways large and small. She engages students through interdisciplinary digital humanities, with multi-media classroom projects and historical field research

Kathy last summer adapted the work of Dr. Samir Meghelli to build an interdisciplinary digital exhibit for the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum using ArcGIS StoryMaps. The exhibit entitled A Right to the City, tells the evolving story of Washington D.C. neighborhoods through historical records, photos, and personal accounts. In response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, Kathy is using ArcGIS StoryMaps and her new storytelling skills to package a meaningful digital learning experience for her online classroom.
