Welcome to Seventh Grade!!!
2017-18 is my nineteenth year at Brawley Middle and my twenty-fourth year working in middle school education. My middle school experience includes teaching grades 6-8 English/Language Arts, 6th and 7th grade social studies, and 6th and 8th grade math. I also served as a middle school Instructional Facilitator for two years.
Other teaching experience includes five and a half years teaching 5th grade and teaching Adult Education English.
In seventh grade Social Studies we focus on these topics:
- Global studies from 1450 to the present
- Geography and environments
- Economic/personal financial systems and
Equipping students to apply knowledge and skills as they become contributing citizens of their communities is the ultimate goal of this class.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." Aristotle
