Welcome to 8th grade social studies! This will be my second year at The International School at Thornton Middle and my 4th year overall teaching. I earned my Bachelors of Arts Degree in political science with a minor in history and criminal justice from Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. I also earned my Master of Arts in Educational Policy from the University of Colorado and my Post-Bachelors in secondary social studies education. I strongly believe that social studies teaches students not only about the world and it’s history, but also on how to be good citizens. I am very passionate about teaching and working with students and seeing their growth. I am honored to be teaching at TIS!
