Hello everyone!

 Online school office hours: Monday-Friday 8:30- 10:30. You can reach me quickly through remind messages  (parents you can sign up also), email-, or through google classroom.  I have my phone on me at most times so if you need to reach out at any time to discuss an issue please send me a message and I will get back with you as soon as possible.  If it is something visually you need help with we can hold a zoom meeting on request only. 

If anyone is having tech issues with school websites please email this address:

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time of covid19.  Ms. Ehramjian, my student teacher, and I have created Remind accounts for the students to sign up for reminders on assignments, along with using our Google Classroom.  If you need help signing into either one of the accounts please email us.  Ms. Ehramjian's for US History classes:, or you can email me at for US and World History students.  I will be checking my email throughout each day we are out of school. 

Please check my IRHS webpage, Google Classroom, and google calendar for updates and lessons throughout the school closure.  We will be posting our assignments daily on Google Classoom, along with Power Points or Google slides, also we will post our Power points on the school website.  Our class calendar will let just give you an idea on what lesson and activity we will be doing each day.  

For those of you who have not signed up for Remind, please download the APP or go to, send a text to 81010, and put in @whgipson for World History and aehram for US history. Again, if you have any problems just send us an email.

Hello, my name is Lori Gipson and I am a social studies teacher at IRHS.  I am certified to teach History and Government, and currently  teach US history and World History.  I have been teaching at IRHS for the past 13 years, and this year we have Ani Ehramjian student teaching with me.  

I graduated from the University of Arizona with a BA in social studies. 

Prior to teaching at IRHS, I was a physical education teacher at ESC in Phoenix.  

I started the History TRAVEL club in 2012, so that we could add to the educational experience of students in my history classes.  We take trips to local historical spots, enjoy guest speakers, such as Jim Zwerg, and help students with scholarship opportunities! I enjoy taking kids to historical sites to see the history they study.  The History Travel Club plans on taking kids on a trip to a historical place in Arizona and an additional trip somewhere in the US this year or 2021!


Scholarship opportunities: 

I will add information as I get updated information on scholarships this year.

Please check the links on my webpage for the syllabus, calendar of information, etc. 

I am looking for a wonderful year with your child! :)
