I have taught 6th grade Social Studies in Georgia for 7 years! I love working with middle schoolers and have discovered new and creative ways to teach the content each year.
I love teaching Social Studies and I want my students to have that same excitement for my favorite subject! My class is based on fun, interactive work that engages my students of all learning abilities and styles. I want my students to not only learn about Social Studies, but also learn to be responsible of their own learning!
This year, I was chosen as the Teacher of the Year for my school district!
I studied History and German at Gettysburg College and had the chance to study abroad in Germany. I studied education at the University of Pennsylvania after teaching English in Austria.
I live in Georgia with my daughter and husband, who is also a Social Studies teacher! We love to travel and visit historic places around the world.
