Welcome to 7th and 8th grade Social Studies! I am excited to get to know you and your students.
Educational Philosophy: I am a strong believer that all students have the ability to thrive and become successful citizens, and that is a strength I bring to my teaching. Building a welcoming, equitable environment to support student learning and success, making history new and authentic, forging strong relationships with my students, and pushing them to think critically are my main goals.
About Me: I am in my third year of teaching here at LJHS. Before LJHS, I interned in a 6th grade social studies classroom at Lyman Moore Middle School in Portland, and a 9th/10th grade criminology and history classroom at Portland High School. I currently live in Brunswick with my husband, cat, and brand new daughter! I enjoy being outdoors, creating art, reading, and movies.
