Phone: ext. 5286
Welcome to Honors World History! It is my opinion that World History is fascinating and relevant. I hope to share my passion with you. If you need to get in touch with me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find all class materials on Google Classroom.
I recently got married, so you may see the name "Grossman" (my maiden name) used interchangeably with "Giordano."
My Education and Professional Background
I received my Bachelor’s degree in History from the University of Arizona and my Master’s degree in Secondary History and English Education from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Before teaching at Hamilton, I taught middle school Social Studies and English in Nashville. I have also worked in museum education at museums such as the United States Holocaust Museum & the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum.
My Educational Philosophy
My biggest goal is for my students to feel empowered through history. I want students to actively contribute to the historical narrative we study. It’s rewarding to see students develop into historians, authors, and leaders.
