Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! This year I will again be teaching 7th, 8th and 9th grade social studies. The 7th grade classes will focus on US History 1800- the present; 8th grade classes will explore Global Studies; and the 9th grade class will have American History. All students will be using their electronic devices for much of our studies. This is going to be a great asset to our class and certainly provide you with great opportunities for deeper learning. For questions regarding assignments and class activities, please take a look at the course tabs on the left. The calendar will automatically update with assignments, due dates and links for each course. Students will be using Google Classroom and Google Calendar to monitor daily work. No doubt that this will be a great year. But most importantly, I am excited to have YOU in my class this year!
This will be my 17th year as a teacher at Kenyon-Wanamingo! I live in Zumbrota with my husband, who is an elementary physical education teacher at Zumbrota-Mazeppa, and our 3 kids, Preston (10), Cora (10), and Hudson (8). I grew up in a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA which has helped to foster a great love of all things Pittsburgh...including the Steelers & Pirates! I completed my undergraduate degree at St. Olaf College and received my masters from Winona State University.
Let's make this another GREAT year! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
