The Whaley House was featured in the Museum Showcase portion of the 45th Annual California Council for the Social Studies (CCSS) Conference held at the Town and Country Hotel in Mission Valley, San Diego on Saturday, March 4, 2006.

CCSS promotes and supports quality Social Studies Education through service, advocacy and leadership development. Approximately 1500 teachers attended this conference. As a continued effort to encourage closer cooperation between community resource programs and classroom teachers, CCSS invited various historical groups to participate.

Whaley House Docent William Doyle utilizing a new poster board display designed by SOHO contributing Editor Dean Glass represented the Whaley House. Teachers visiting this exhibit learned about the historic Whaley House and its role in educating students and visitors alike.

The Whaley House is history and education. As many as 12,000 students along with teachers visit the Whaley House each year as part of the Off-Campus Integrated Learning Experiences (OCILE) Program at Old Town. OCILE offers outstanding educational and human interaction opportunities for San Diego City Schools' fourth grade students.

William Doyle can be seen bringing history alive while animatedly greeting groups of students each week at the Whaley House as he presents the history and attire of San Diego's pioneer merchant Thomas Whaley.
