Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies! From early African civilizations to the American Revolution, we'll cover a variety of world history topics while learning what it takes to become a global citizen. I pride myself on creating an educational environment that promotes creativity, individual interest, and tolerance. This year I'll be working with my partner, Mr. Stuart. We've spent the last few years developing interactive lessons that work well both in the classroom and at home.
This is my fourth year teaching at Goetz Middle School, and I've lived in Jackson my entire life. In 2018, I graduated from Kean University with a BA in history, and I currently co-lead a study abroad program based out of Dublin, Ireland during the summer.

2023 Instruction Update: All work for this class can be accessed via Google Classroom (including links to assignments, study guides, and more). You'll see my work under Mr. Jackson/Mr. Stuart Social Studies on the Google Classroom selection page. As per school and state guidance, students who are absent for whatever reason will be able to access work for that day through Google Classroom, and anything that requires in-person delivery will be provided upon their return.
Please feel free to reach out at any time with questions or if you would just like to say hi!
