Degrees and Certifications:
Fifth Grade Social Studies and Writing Teacher
This is my fourth year teaching, and my third year teaching fifth grade. I grew up in Sarasota, Florida, then moved to New York City where I received my Bachelor’s degrees in Journalism and Sociology from New York University. I then moved to Minneapolis where I received my Master of Education from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.
Both social studies and writing have been passions of mine since I was myself in elementary school. My goal for this year is to make history come alive for my students in engaging, thought-provoking ways through hands-on activities that encourage collaboration and research projects that build critical thinking skills. It is my hope to foster a lifelong love of history with my fifth grade students, in the same way my fifth grade teacher did for me.
