A little about me...
I am from a small town south of Springfield where we were know as the Mohawks. This is where I learned to work hard and always learn something new everyday. I have a very large blended family, am married to a wonderful man and have a precious little girl. I love spending time with my family which includes my twelve nieces and nephews.
Why do I like History and Social Studies?
I love teaching about History because it allows us to learn about the past so that we can create a better future. Every event has multiple stories behind it and many different points of view. All of this allows me to understand what caused the conflicts throughout history and how they may effect our future.
