Welcome to 6th grade Social Studies!
This is my first year at Saunders, but my 7th year overall teaching in Prince William County. In addition to teaching social studies I am one of the volleyball coaches at Beville Middle School. I earned my B.S. in political science and psychology and my M.A.T. in social studies education from the University of Pittsburgh. Hail to Pitt!
This year we will cover basic geography and U.S. History until 1865.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and another successful school year!
Every student should have a binder and has been issued a textbook that will be kept in the classroom. Students can bring their textbook home on an as needed basis. On the files and documents and useful links pages you can find notepages, other documents, and materials we have looked at in class. You can also find some extra materials for practice.
