Meet Your Teacher

Summer Adventures in the White Mountains 2014 
Welcome to eighth grade social studies.  I'm excited to have you in my class this year.  I have always loved American History and feel so lucky to be able to share my passion with my students.   I also really enjoy teaching eighth grade.  This is my fourteenth year doing so.

This year we will learn about the history of the United States from the Constitution through the turn of the 20th Century.  We will examine many primary sources - from speeches and diaries to art and photographs.  In this way, we will get a better understanding of what it was really like in America during the time periods we are studying.  In addition, you will participate in simulations, inquiry, and problem based learning activities to help you actively engage in historical thinking.  

I hope you have a wonderful remainder of the summer.  I am looking forward to meeting you.
