Welcome to seventh and eighth grade social studies and seventh and eighth grade Spanish! I'm excited to be in my 20th year of teaching, all at Cedar Grove-Belgium Middle School. I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in elementary/middle level education. I also have a master's degree from Cardinal Stritch University in instructional technology.
Throughout the school year, it is my goal to have the students think critically about the world around them. In 7th grade social studies class, we will be examining three key areas: political science, geography, and economics. Class lessons will focus on the application of concepts and making connections between the material and the students' daily lives.
In 8th grade social studies class, we will be exploring the history of the United States from pre-colonization through Reconstruction. Class lessons will focus on analyzing primary and secondary sources, critically thinking about our history, and examining historical events from multiple perspectives.
In my Spanish classes, my goal is to introduce the students to a foreign language as well as the culture of the various Spanish-speaking countries. This is a great opportunity for them to see if they would like to continue with Spanish in high school.
The best time to contact me is during my prep time or after school.
