8th Grade Social Studies
Hello and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I am very glad to be at Willis Junior High School and look forward to working with staff, students, and parents throughout the year.
I was educated in North Dakota, where I received my Bachelors degree from the University of Mary in 2001. In addition, I also have a Masters degree in Secondary Education from Northern Arizona University which I received in 2006.
This is my 17th year teaching, all in Junior High Social Studies. I have taught in Arizona, North Carolina, and Minnesota. I am married and have two children, ages 8 and 6.
8th grade Social Studies classes will study the American Revolution and the formation of Constitution in quarter 1. Quarter 2 will focus on government and economics. Quarter 3 will emphasize World War II, and Quarter 4 will consist of the Cold War, Korean War, Vietnam, Civil Rights, and modern presidents of America.
