Teacher to participate in AP reading


Linda Mulvihill, history teacher and department chair at Holy Spirit High School, was selected to participate in the annual reading and scoring of the College Board’s Advanced Placement Exams in U.S. history. Mulvihill will travel to Kentucky in June.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) gives more than 1.8 million capable high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations. Based on their exam performance, successful students can receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.

The year, more than 10,000 AP Readers from universities and high schools will evaluate 3.2 million examinations from more than 30 AP courses. AP Readers are made up of professional educators from the United States, Canada and abroad.

“The reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professionals that the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, vice president of Advanced Placement Program at the College Board. “It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas, and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Linda Mulvihill.”
