I was born and raised in San Antonio and am absolutely in love with Texas History! I graduated with a B.S. in Education from the University of Texas. Hook 'EM! I am so excited to be the new addition to the history department here at Bradley Middle School. I am teaching 6th grade World Cultures and 7th grade Texas History. In 1999 I was lucky enough to be one of the first groups to explore the Mill Springs Cabin. Twenty years later I have earned the opportunity to be one of the leaders of the cabin tours. I cannot wait to see all the amazing things we will do this year. I look forward to empowering my students to be confident in themselves, grow into the person they wish to be, and most importantly I hope to see them change the world. Let's have an amazing year! Go BEARS!
6th Grade World Cultures
World Cultures enables scholars to see, understand and appreciate the web of relationships between people, places, and environments. My students will use the knowledge, skills, and understanding of concepts within the six essential elements of geography: government and economics, places and regions, physical and human systems, environment, society, and diverse maps. I plan to instruct students with empathy in mind, by enhancing that which they already have and exposing them to unique and exciting traditions and cultures from all over our planet. I want them to feel challenged, learn new things, become more self-directed, be part of a community, and have fun when they are in Portable C!
7th Grade Texas History
We study Texas History to not only learn about our great state, but also to identify important leadership traits in those that made Texas the state it is today. We will explore early Texas all the way to modern day Texas. Important stops along the way will include: the exploration of Texas and foundations of the missions, the Texas Revolution, Reconstruction, Civil Rights and government. Students will also be tasked with an incredible opportunity to lead groups at the Mill Springs Cabin that is currently on campus. I will train students on their roles and responsibilities, and come February they will be able to emit these leadership qualities they gained in the fall. I look forward to watching my students grow in their leadership while having fun!
