Greetings and welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies on the Appalachian State Mountaineer Team.  I am ecstatic to be working with your students throughout the year.  We have a lot of history to cover in 180 days so we will be moving quick throughout the curriculum.
 
WHO AM I?
 
Just a little bit about me - I grew up just outside of Atlanta, Georgia and moved to Neenah, Wisconsin just shy of the end of 8th Grade.  I graduated with my Bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse in 2010. I just graduated with my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Gardner-Webb University in August.  Essentially, I learned how to be a better teacher for your student. I moved down to Asheville solely to be an Erwin Warrior!  I'm starting year SIX at Erwin, and I can't wait to explore World History this year!  
 
 
WHAT SHOULD YOU AND YOUR STUDENT KNOW ABOUT CLASS?
 
Your students are awesome, and I truly enjoy working with them every single day.  I have two important goals while your student is in my class this year.   First, I want your student to challenge ideas and be challenged by different views.  This means students will be able to take a stance on an issue, research that issue and present their findings to convince others.   Second, I want your student to be a social, moral being productive to society. In class, you student will be asked to respond and reflect about the topic at hand through writing, reading, speaking, thinking, and moving.
 
IMPORTANT REMINDERS:
 
Please check with your student about access to PowerSchool .  There is a lot of important information for you and your student to see! 

Sign up for Remind 101!  You will receive pertinent information regarding dates, events, and reminders throughout the school year.
