Welcome to 7th grade Social Studies!
I’m so excited to have your child for social studies this year! This course in American History will lay the groundwork for good citizenship for your son or daughter as we explore the nation’s identity through historical events. This subject is my passion and I hope your students enjoy the journey.
My goal is that students would leave my classroom being more informed, better citizens who are able to understand and empathize with those different than themselves.
The format which your student will be learning in is certainly different than anything else ever experienced, but different is not bad! This is a new challenge with lots of growth and learning to be found. We’ll face and adapt to these challenges together as a learning team.
I have high expectations for your student. They are capable and they are resilient. But I also know we all need grace, some days more than others. If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email. I regularly check my inbox and will respond within 24-48 hrs (longer on the weekends).
I can’t wait to see what we’ll accomplish together!
