Welcome to World History and AP Human Geography!  


My name is Lori Rost Gipson and I will be teaching World History and AP Human Geography this school year! I am very excited to get back in the classroom to see all the lovely young faces!  Even if we will have to wear masks! :)


I am certified to teach History and Government; this will be my 14th year at IRHS and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach AP Human Geography to the incoming freshmen class. 

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! :)
