U.S. History–1860 to Present

  • 8th Grade
Hello all! I would like to share a little about myself. I graduated from UWGB with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Teaching and a Minor in Natural Sciences. Since then, I have taught in the Manitowoc, Sevastopol and Green Bay School districts. During my first year at Notre Dame I was a 5th grade teacher at the elementary school. I was very excited to have made the move to middle school. I truly enjoy being able to teach the same students for three consecutive years. I believe it gives us a chance to really build solid relationships with which we can use to provide the best possible education. I was born and raised in central Door County in a large family of eight, of which I'm the youngest. I myself attended Catholic schools from 1st to 8th grade, and loved the education and experiences I received there. I enjoy baseball, softball, movies, bowling, volleyball and hunting. As a teacher, I try to keep things engaging by changing things up and doing many hands on lessons. I love the smile on a child's face when they "get it". That "aha" moment is priceless.

Each student has been supplied with a planner notebook.  Please check the planner daily for any homework assignments and due dates. All  middle school staff will be concentrating on the paper planner at the start of the school to help each student develop a daily routine of writing in and checking their planners. Teachers will give time at the end of each class and during study hall to update them.  
Please also check Google Classroom for more details. Students are also required to check their emails at a minimum of twice each day for additional homework details and reminders.
