Welcome to 6th Grade!
I am fairly new to St. Pius X and am excited to contribute to this thriving spiritual and educational community. As the 6th grade homeroom teacher, I am responsible for helping the kids develop the planning and critical thinking skills needed to succeed in middle school.
In physical science, we'll learn about the properties of matter, chemical reactions, forces, electricty and types of waves. In 6th grade social studies, we are learning about world history, with a emphasis on a few major civilizations. By the end of the year students will understand the purposes of government, the ways societies interact, and the pivotal role of economic systems in international relationships and individual decision-making.
I have an a dual BA in Geography and Anthropology from Central Washington University, and an MA in Anthropology from Oregon State University. Teaching in graduate school solidified my decision to pursue teaching as a vocation, and I am so grateful to now work at a mission-driven school.
