Welcome Back to All Students!
6th, 7th and 8th Grade Social Studies!
I am looking forward to an exciting year as we aim high toward our collective student goals. We will be learning about all things social studies! In 8th grade advanced American History, we will learn about the early years before our country was founded through Reconstruction after the Civil War. In 7th Grade Advanced Civics, we will be learning about our rights and responsibilities as it applies to the roles of our government and its citizens. In 6th Grade Advanced and Regular classes we will learn about ancient civilizations, maps, charts, graphs while we examine documents from long ago. Students will be able to show what they know in many ways as they strive to master the content.
All of my classes will be maintaining an online class notebook through Microsoft Teams as well as a physical folder and spiral notebook. This will help us to transition to at home learning if we have to shut down in the middle of the year without interrupting the flow of our learning. It will also make the assignments and handouts accessible to absent students who are out of class.
This is my second year teaching the gifted students at the elementary level. I am excited to explore areas that interest the students and will be conducting surveys, examining curriculum maps and conferring with the classroom teachers to develop activities that will propel these students forward in their education while having fun at the same time!
Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.). These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms. If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.
Welcome to a new school year! For our face to face classes, our schedule will be a block schedule.
Email and Remind continue to be the best way to reach me as they are checked throughout the day.
