I am very excited to be teaching U.S. History to the 8th grade class of 2017!
This class will be very rigorous, fun and full of adventures. We will explore the birth of our nation starting with the establishment of the 13 colonies, and soon after we will analyze the declaration of Independence. Students will be able to explore the significance of the Civil war. Finally we will end our year with Reconstruction by looking at the economical and social chances of America.
I Hope you are all as excite as I am to begin working in my class!!!
Always remember to be awesome!!!
