Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies. Studying history, cultures, and geography, have been something I have long enjoyed. Whether exploring in person or vicariously, the world is a wonderful place to see and learn about. With a book, a map, and our imagination, we can travel to distant lands, or to places and events of years past.

My Education and Professional Background

BA, Educational Studies and Social Science. In 2013, I began my career in education with the Chandler Unified School District as a substitute, Para-Educator, and now as a classroom teacher. Prior to that, I worked for over thirty years in the manufacture of chemicals, electronic materials, and printed circuit boards, traveling and living across the United States.

My Educational Philosophy

The classroom I believe should be an environment that is engaging, one where both serious and light-hearted discussions can take place and respect for each other is a priority.
