Welcome to the Social Studies Extravaganza. This website is designed as a "teach from" portal, with lessons for Global History 12 and Political Science 12 embedded in the pages. Resources for the Units I'll be teaching at Citadel High School are just one click away as I project this site to the front of my classroom.
Teaching for a Better Society
Creative problem solving doesn't stop when we leave the school. It influences every interaction in home and community life. With years of experience at community building and teaching ESL in Halifax, I am well-equipped as a new graduate of the Education program at Mount St. Vincent University to make an impact in the classroom. I am a learner-centered educator with a strong Social Studies background across a number of disciplines. You can read more about my experiences, achievements and awards on LinkedIn, here.
I believe in accountability and accessibility for all students and parents, as well as for colleagues. There is open access to this site so you can follow your child's lessons, interact with them and give feedback or ask questions. For others in the teaching profession, you will find a goldmine of resource links and publications in my online library on the teacher resource page that you can access from the top menu.
Please check in regularly for updates and news, and if you have a Twitter account, follow me for education-related tweets and entertainment news. You can do this from the live feed on the landing (home) page.
