Greetings and Welcome! This is my seventh year at Valley View Middle School but my 19th year teaching in the areas of Social Studies, Media Literacy, and Reading within grades 6-12. For the past 6 years I have been the Media Director here at VVMS, but now I have the honor of teaching 6th, 7th & 8th grade Social Studies! I am excited to engage in rich discussion about history, geography, world cultures and civic engagement and perspectives. I believe it is an exciting time to engage in the study of history, to be aware of our past and use our knowledge and experiences to collectively challenge and shape the way for our future.
