Mt. de Sales Academy teacher returns from fellowship program in Abraham Lincoln's Springfield home

In July, Michelle Natale, a teacher at Mount de Sales Academy, participated in the Horace Mann-Abraham Lincoln Fellowship Program in Springfield, Ill. In addition to viewing Lincoln's home, tomb and museum, the group heard experts speak on the Civil War era.

She plans to incorporate some of the lessons learned when she teaches her history, government and economics courses at the all-girls Catholic high school in Catonsville.

Her National History Club will work on a mini-museum project and her advanced placement United States history class will analyze parts of "The Conspirator," in recognition of the Civil War's sesquicentennial.
