Ms. Canipe teaches Advanced Placement (AP) human geography and World History I honors, as well as medical law and ethics for Cosby High’s Health Science Specialty Center.

She has been teaching with Chesterfield County Schools since 1992, and her career has spanned 39 years. As part of the award for being selected as a teacher fellow, Canipe will attend the AGS Fall Symposium, Geography 2050: Envisioning a Sustainable Planet, Nov. 17-18 at Columbia University in New York City. The symposium will enable the teacher fellows to gain valuable cutting edge content knowledge and awareness of the real-world geographic workplace skills demanded by today’s geospatial companies.

The Village News last year reported on her world travels.
