Welcome to 8th grade! I look forward to meeting all of you and working together to learn about and examine the world around us.

My Education and Professional Background

My Educational Philosophy

It is my philosophy that-especially in our world today-it is vital for young people to be ready to engage with complex and uncertain issues using critical and rational thinking. The Social Studies serve as a lens through which we can view the world around us and make informed judgments based on evidence. To this end I emphasize educational opportunities where students can collaborate, engage with primary sources, and attempt to understand alternative perspectives. We all approach the world with a certain set of experiences and talents, but there is no reason that we should let ourselves stop there. There is always room for growth!
