Welcome to my Webpage! I am excited and look forward to the great year ahead. I am in my first full year as a teacher in our great school district. I started teaching here in March of last school year and have coached Boys Basketball (Asst. Varsity / HC Junior Varsity) the past two seasons and really look forward to year 3 on the hardwood. I recieved my Bachelors Degree from The University of Oklahoma (BOOMER!!) and my Masters Degree from Wilmington University. I have worked in and around education for the last 8 years and have had the blessing of learning in and from some of the best educators throughout the Tri-County area from every level: elementary to college including alternative and non-traditional education settings. It is these experiences that I have learned from and look forward to utilizing to positively impact the students of our awesome district!
ACADEMIC WORLD HISTORY
Over the course of this year, we will be studying various cultures from around the globe. We will be studying civilizations from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas. One of our main goals for this year will be to analyze each of the civilizations and focus on their potential similarities/differences. While doing so, you will build upon academic skills that will further improve your overall performance as a student—writing analysis, critical reading, and using evidence to construct strong arguments. Some of the main focus periods/themes that we will be studying are the Global Age, Renaissance, Reformation, Scientific Revolution, Enlightenment, Age of Revolutions, Era of Great Wars, and Challenges in our Modern World.
