My content area is Social Studies and my placement for the year is in Berkeley Middle School. I am one of the few who requested a middle school placement and am looking forward to working with the students there.

I first learned I liked to teach by working as a substitute in various classrooms while still living in Upstate NY. Once I started working for Colonial Williamsburg, I had opportunities to teach history to children and adults, alike. It was through that experience that I felt my call into teaching solidified.

The classroom I hope to create is one in which students feel comfortable and supported in their learning endeavors by my efforts as their teacher. I also aim to foster within my students an interest in history and politics. For those students more resistant to the social studies subjects, I hope to capture their attention with at least one, in their opinion, very interesting and pertinent fact or topic.
