Hello! I would like to welcome you and your student to my class this year. I am one of the 8th Grade Social Studies teachers here at the Middle School. In addition to teaching Social Studies, I also teach 2 life skills classes. Before making Belen Middle School my home I worked at Gil Sanchez Elementary for 3 years where I taught two years in 6th grade and 1 in second. Before that I spent own year teaching in Los Lunas. I have my Bachelors in Education from UNM and my Masters in Educational Leadership with the focus on the Inclusive Classroom from Concordia University.
I look forward to working with each of your students this year!
Students in 8th Grade Social Studies will be expected to complete several current events throughout the school year. This is a homework assignment, but students can come in and work on current events during ESP or lunch.
The expectations for this assignment are for students to summarize an event that is happening around the world. Students need to stay away from sporting events, concerts, movie premiers, but should be hard news. All students will have a guide in their binders to help them on how to complete this assignment that they should use.
