Welcome to my class page! Learn more about me here.

In my class I use technology to enhance learning. Students use google products as well as teacher created interactive notebooks to engage learners. In my class I try to incorporate STEAM projects and truly enjoy learning from my students. In Social Studies I will be focusing on the Eastern Hemisphere (6th) and US History (7th & 8th). In ELA, I will be using Engage NY Modules that are linked to CCLS, utilizing academic and culturally diverse readings. I also focus on writing throughout all content areas with an emphasis on writing across the genres of Narrative, Informative and Persuasive writing.
