I have been teaching 7th and 8th grade social studies for 20 years. I am currently teaching civics and geography to 7th graders and ancient world history to 8th graders. I have enjoyed teaching the subjects that I teach because of the way I choose to teach them. I have developed many unit projects and activities over the years that I have changed and tweeked along the way. I would love to share what I have poured my heart into for many years with those just starting the profession or just looking for something new to incorporate into their lessons.
I pride myself on being a "real world" teacher. I want students to know how each topic or skill may be used in their life. I have tried to create experiences that students can relate to.
I have been the Social Studies Department Chair for over 10 years. I have been the leader of my team (middle school concept). I also created and coordinate a school-wide service project each year that raised $15,000 last year for a special needs student in desperate need of a modified van to accommodate his wheelchair.
