After a year of subbing, I have spent 12 years teaching 7th and 8th grade Social Studies. I teach U.S. History and Western Hemisphere.
I am not the biggest fan of the textbook. I like projects, student-centered learning, making connections with current events. I don't like assigning (or grading!) busy work. I am very organized and structured.
Nothing on paper officially, but I am the teacher that students say they learn the most from in my grade level. I wear it with honor!
Bachelors Degree from UW Oshkosh and Masters Degree from Viterbo University.
My first love is teaching. I can't imagine doing anything else for a job!
