I am excited to be at Young Jr. High. This will be my 21st year of teaching. I look forward to teaching students the skills they need to be successful in the 21st century. This history class will teach students to be free thinkers, become better people, communicators, collaborators, and creators of meaningful work. They will be taught how history effects the present. Technology in the classroom will be used to construct knowledge, collaborate, reflect, and share thus creating a powerful digital footprint.
