About Me

HELLO!  First, I am a very proud mother of two wonderful boys :)
This 2014-2015 school year, I am starting my 20th year in the only district I have ever worked for.  I started the middle schools Learning Center program many years ago.  I held that phenomenal position for 7 years.  There were possible budget cuts so I moved into the classroom.  I taught Ancient Civilizations to 6th graders for 9 years.  I LOVED teaching that course!  Last year an unexpected opportunity arose for me to move to 8th grade, U.S. History.  So, this school year I will be starting my 2nd year in this position.  
I am a huge believer in change and always trying new things.  My goal is always to present lessons that engage students.  And this is why I LOVE Edmodo!
I am blessed and feel very honored to be an Edmdocon 2014 presenter!!!  I can't wait to share my unit and hope everyone finds it as beneficial as I do.
