• Hello everybody!

    Welcome to my class in quarantine! I know that someday we will look back on these extraordinary circumstances we are all enduring and be able to tell our grandchildren what it was like. I hope everyone is healthy and safe and making the best of a difficult and sometimes stressful situation.

    I definitely don't want social studies class to be something to stress about, so if anybody has any questions, please don't hesitate to email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. The classwork from the first two weeks was posted on Google Classroom on March 16th, and will be posted for the next two weeks by Monday, March 30th at 8am. In case anyone needs to log ionto Google classroom, my class codes are listed below. The work will also be posted on this homepage as well.

    Students worked on two different assignments for the first two weeks when it was unclear just how long we would be out of school. Now that it appears this quarantine will be longer term, there will be some new instruction. For social studies, this work will be focusing on the Constitution up until spring break. I will post work, which will consist of notes and some questions, as well as an essay exam to be completed by April 7th.

    I miss everyone and look forward to getting back in the classroom, whenever that may be!

    Best wishes and health to all!
