Welcome to 7th grade Social Studies!
This is my first year teaching at Northwest Guilford after 19 years of teaching in Wake and Rockingham counties. This is also my first year teaching social studies after 19 years of teaching language arts. So, expect an emphasis on reading and writing skills as we journey through the ages and focus on today.
Before college, I served in the US Army Signal Corps. I then attended NC State University and graduated in 2000 with a degree in Middle Grades Education- Language Arts and Social Studies. I later completed my M. Ed. from Western Governors University in Learning and Technology.
I am a HUGE NC State Wolfpack and Carolina Panthers fan. I am also a HUGE book nerd! I will be pushing and recommending books to students all year long, and I love to talk books whenever possible.
Looking forward to a great year!
