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 in crime, Mr. Stuart, and we've spent the last few months developing interactive lessons that work well both in the classroom and at home.
This is my third 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 course every summer through Ocean County College based out of Dublin, Ireland.

2021 Instruction Update: First I'd like to say that I hope everyone is faring well during these days of uncertainty; my love and support goes out to all my students and their families. From this point forward, all work for my 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 in the Google Classroom selection page. As per school and state guidance, students who are absent for whatever reason will be able to access the 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!
