Degrees and Certifications:
I am one of the 7th/8th grade social studies teachers at Canfield Middle School teaching World Cultures (7th grade), and U.S. History (8th grade). My goals are to build meaningful relationships with my students, teach through much more than textbooks and lecturing, and guide my students through study skills and life skills. My hands-on and interactive approach to curriculum aims for true student engagement and interest.
This is my second year of teaching! With one year of teaching this class under my belt, I am both deeply prepared and excited to continue teaching this subject while implementing many things I learned last year. I knew I wanted to teach when I was six years old, so having my own classroom is a dream come true. In my classroom your students will find challenges, out-of-their-desk activities, conversation, thinking skills, and personal-value.
I value input from and interaction with the students, parents, and anyone else whom my teaching affects. Feel free to stop by or contact me to introduce yourself or ask any questions you may have.
