Gresham High School social studies teacher Michael Lindblad has been named State Social Studies Teacher of the Year by the Oregon Council for the Social Studies.

"Mr. Lindblad brings an energy and enthusiasm to his classroom that is unique," said Principal John Koch in a press release. "Through social studies, he encourages students to become citizens of the world, making him an asset to our school and our community."

Lindblad teaches global studies and International Baccalaureate History of the Americas. He has taught at the school for 14 years and his specialty is world and Latin American history.

Each year Lindblad's students raise awareness or funds in the community to help local, national or international places in need.

His classes have helped citizens in Haiti, Japan, New Jersey and the Philippines by making dresses for children in orphanages, holding benefit concerts or events and working with local restaurants.

In addition to his work at Gresham High, Lindblad prepares the next generation of social studies instructors by working with student teachers.

He has worked with the Marylhurst University Department of Education since 2008.
