Welcome to my website!
Having taught Texas History and U.S. History previously and loved it, this year I am teaching World Cultures, and I am excited about it! When I taught years of British literature and American literature at the high school level, I loved teaching the historical aspect of it and how the events of that time period affected and impacted authors and their writing, i.e. Anglo-Saxon Old English, the medieval era, the Renaissance, the Englightenment, the Industrial Revolution, the Romantic Period, the Roaring 20's in America, the Great Depression & migrant workers, post World War II Cold War era in relation to McCarthyism in the early 1950's versus the early colonial period that saw the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, and the 1960's Civil Rights movement, to name a few. Therefore, Social Studies is definitely a passion of mine!
Nonetheless, I taught at the high school level for 12 years before working with middle school kids. This is my 8th year at Coppell Middle School West, and in keeping with district resources, all course information can be found in my course on Schoology and can be accessed via the link below. Thank you very much, and I'm looking forward to another successful year in education!
