I love the subject of Social Studies/History. I think it is an exciting area to study. The idea that normal, everyday people who are put in extraordinary circumstances that change not only their lives, but have the potential to change the lives of thousands is the most amazing thing to me. When I'm not teaching, you can find me dreaming about my next trip. I have been to over 30 countries/ 4 out of the 7 continents and have many more I want to visit. :o)
also love to create things in the kitchen; my friends and family love when I get stressed out and feel the need to be "creative".
Because I have a passion for Social Studies, I want everyone to get as excited about the subject as I am. I want to see everyone succeed, to learn the importance of the past as it applies to the present and future, to know what came before that was the catalist for our current actions. History is not merely the study of the "Great White" men and the important events that they took place in, but the story of the common man and how his or her life changed. To help you achieve success, we will be using our text, American Journey, along with worksheets, supplemental videos and readings; working in groups, partners and as well as alone on various projects that allows the student to further explore the content.
