Degrees and Certifications:
I am looking forward to working with your student through their successes and challenges. I have been working with young people in an alternative setting for the past 6 years. I teach 8th grade World Geography first semester and 8th grade careers second semester, I also teach 7th and 8th grade study skills. My classroom is a full flex seating classroom, we sit on Yoga balls, bean bags, wobble stools/chairs, or stand. Movement is very important to busy young minds, we embrace the movement and use it to help students focus.
This class is broken into three Units: Map Skills, Physical Geography, and Human Issues/ Conservation. Each unit will have a correlated Interactive Notebook. Each item in the IN will have a copy on this website. I will also post short clips and other resources we use in class.
This class is centered around career and college readiness. We will look at high school options, military service, junior college, 4-year universities, and career options.
