Ms. Lori Rost Gipson

Welcome to World History or AP Human Geography!  

 My name is Lori Rost Gipson and I will be teaching World History and Ap Human Geography this school year!  I hope everyone is ready to get back to learning and exploring the world!! 

I am certified to teach History, Social Studies, and Government; this will be my 16th year at IRHS. I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach World History and AP Human Geography to the incoming Freshmen class this year!  Prior to teaching at IRHS, I was a physical education teacher at ESC in Phoenix.  

Loving history and travel, led me to start the History TRAVEL club in 2012; through travel I have been able to add an exciting element to the educational experience of student learning in my history classes.  We took trips to local historical spots, enjoyed guest speakers, such as Jim Zwerg, and helped students with scholarship opportunities! Although we do not have the History Travel Club, I still take adventurous people on tours.  These tours are not affiliated with the Amphi School District. I do this on my own, and have led over 7 tours. My next tour will be to Costa Rica, May 2th, 2023!  If you are interested please let me know!

If we are able to, I will be posting our assignments, information, or discussions daily on Schoology, along with Power Points or Google slides.  Also, I will post our class calendar which will give you an idea of what lesson and activity we will be doing each day.  (Can be changed as we go)


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! :)
