Students learn best when they feel connected the classroom cmmunity, when learning is authentic and when they "see" themselves reflected in the curriculum. I work hard to build strong relationships with my students because middle schoolers thrive when they feel connected to their school community. As a social studies teacher, I challenge students break out of their own worldview by examining historical and current events from multiple perspectives.
