Welcome to Middle School Social Studies! I am the new Junior High Social Studies Teacher from Grades 5-8. I will also be handling high school admissions placement and coordination for our 8th Grade students. I look forward to collaborating with each family in order to ensure the social, emotional and academic success of each student while providing each learner with the prowess to cultivate spiritual and multicultural values from the study of history. Furthermore, I am teaching 8th Grade Religion as the 8th Grade Homeroom teacher during this school year. The focal point of 5-8th Grade Social Studies is to promote intellectual rigor manifesting in the form of interdisciplinary projects, critical analysis of primary and secondary sources and honing expository writing skills in order to prepare students for secondary level Social Studies coursework. Nonetheless, I am excited to bring my pedagogical talents and enthusiasm for history into the classroom and instill an interest and passion for Social Studies among all students.
As a dynamic, progressive educator, I look forward to individualizing instruction in order to appeal to myriad learning modalities and student interests within Social Studies. I also intend to nurture inquisitive, creative, and reflective scholars, in accordance with the mission and mores of St. Brigid-St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Academy centered on providing a Catholic educational experience. I welcome any inquiries or suggestions to assist each pupil in fulfilling their God-given potential since I perceive all families and guardians as partners in their children’s education. I will also be posting information regarding high school admissions fairs, announcements virtual tours, application forms/information and entrance exam dates for public, charter and Catholic schools for our 8th Grade families on this page. I will also enclose the Google classroom codes in order to view student Google classroom assignments to be completed at 2:30 along with supplemental material.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to a great year! Stay safe!
