I have been a teacher for 13 years with all but the first year at Upland High School. I recieved a Bacholar's of Arts in History from the Rhode Island College. My Masters in Education is from Cal Poly Pomona.
I have been teaching Government and Economics for the past 8 years and really enjoy sharing my life experiences with students including the fact that my husband owns his own company and we keep a high interest in government affairs.
I am married for almost 20 years and am a proud parent of three young children ages Jennafer 10, Annaka 8, and Connor 6 who are my life.
Everyday the first 5-10 minutes of class we will be watching CNN student news. This is an student friendly news show of current events in the world. Students are asked to respond to a question about the news for points at the end of each unit. If they miss the news they can watch it on the internet at http://www.cnn.com/studentnews/
