I look forward to developing connections with the kids and introducing them to the interesting journey through World History.

Hands-on activities, videos, class discussions, interactive notebooks and tool box notebooks will be utilized for  classroom instruction.  My goal is always two-fold: I am      grateful for the opportunity to help them grow as individuals,   and I work  to cultivate a love and curiosity for the study of history.  Thank you for the opportunity to teach your children.

When my eighth graders walk through my classroom door, I am excited to have the opportunity to have a second year of learning and building relationships with them.  We will be using videos, hands-on activities, interactive notebooks and their own academic toolbox to master the material.  I strive to help the kids deepen their love of history, but even more important is the goal of helping  them enrich their love for learning as a lifetime journey.  Thank you for the opportunity to teach your children.
