Letter of thanks to Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center from Ridgefield resident Kim Pereira, 7th-grade history teacher at Newtown Middle School
Thank you to the Keeler Tavern museum—especially Hildegard Grob and Melissa Houston, for their awesome talents.
They provided my 7th grade students with a wonderful, interactive online “virtual field trip” today. Our students had the chance to “meet” both Timothy and Esther Keeler and to learn about their experience during the Battle of Ridgefield.
At a time when all of us teachers are striving to give our students meaningful online experiences, the Keeler Tavern really delivered. Bravo to them for their creativity, their knowledge and for their kindness in working with me to make this happen.
