• Introduction

    One of the main goals of the effective Social Studies teacher is to build a foundation of skills necessary in order that students become productive and active members of the community and society. Furthermore, these skills should be enhanced in order that students become effective thinkers, evaluators, and communicators.  It is my personal goal to assist each and every student reach these goals.

    "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." 
    Butterfly in the Wind
    A child is a butterfly in the wind;
    Some can fly higher than others;
    But each one flies the best that it can.
    Why compare one against the other?
    Each one is different.
    Each one is special.
    Each one is beautiful.
