Inverness Middle School social studies teacher Rick Nelson.

Inverness Middle School teacher Rick Nelson will attend one of two C-SPAN Educators' Conferences later this month, one of 32 educators from across the nation selected to attend the middle-school conference.

Nelson, a social studies teacher, will attend the professional development program in Washington, D.C, on July 22 and 23.

The conference will provide educators with the opportunity to explore C-SPAN Classroom’s teaching resources, hear from guest speakers and learn how to search, clip and share videos from over 250,000 hours in C-SPAN's Video Library, according to a news release from the public affairs network.

Participants were selected by a panel of C-SPAN representatives and evaluated based on their commitment to learning new educational resources, applying them in the classroom environment and sharing their professional development experiences in their academic communities. C-SPAN is providing round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations and meals for the two days.

The Educators' Conferences are sponsored by C-SPAN's Education Foundation, a charitable organization created by C-SPAN. C-SPAN Classroom is an entity of C-SPAN, or the Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network, which was formed in 1979 by and is funded by America’s cable and satellite television companies as a nonprofit public service to televise government proceedings. In Inverness, C-SPAN is available through Comcast. Its programming is also accessible at https://www.c-span.org/.
