    New Learning Procedures:

    We will be utilizing Teams and the Class Notebooks in Teams to continue our learning sequence. Assignments will be pushed out through the Assignments tab in Teams and will need to be uploaded there for grading. In the Class Notebook you should go to the Agendas section in each unit after 3 pm on Fridays for an updated list of requirements and a projection of the next week’s learning objectives. If you have technical problems, please see the Virtual Distance Learning section with videos in the Class Notebook for help tips created by high school teachers on how to fix any technically issues you may have with Teams or Class Notebooks.

    Additionally, I will use Teams to conduct live class sessions every week Monday - Thursday based on the period schedule above. Please check your Teams/emails for the link to join those classes. Students may choose to attend the live sessions or simply work asynchronously following the due dates posted in their weekly agenda; if you choose not to join the live sessions please do not expect me to hold an individual session or explain in an individual email what all you missed; it is not possible for me to do that for each student.  Weekly agendas will be posted in OneNote.  Please read the directions for each individual assignment to see how to submit it.

    |About Me|
     
    Born and raised in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, I am thrilled to return to Harrisburg with the opportunity to be a part of the STHS family. I am a graduate of Pottsville Area High School and an alumni of Messiah College where I earned my Bachelor's degree in History with Social Studies Certification. I am also currently enrolled in a graduate program at Wilson College in which my goal is to earn my Masters in Education by the end of this school year!
     
    I began my teacher career like many educators as a long-term substitute teacher. I taught American History for several months until I decided to take a few month to teach English in Thailand. Upon returning from Asia, I was hired as a 7th grade Ancient History teacher at Susquehanna Township Middle School. I loved my 7th graders so much, I decided to follow them to 8th grade where I once again taught American History. When my dream job (teaching high school social studies) became avaiable, I glady accepted the posistion. I now teacher Psychology and Modern World History at Susquehanna Township High School. Go Indians!
     
    A few of my favorite things include peanut butter, chocolate, traveling, hiking, kayaking and elephants. I am blessed to have traveled a few places across the globe including Germany, Austria and Slovakia. I spent five months studying in Uganda and Rwanda, and I taught English to adult women in Thailand. I also volunteered with missions services in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. I am an adventure seeker and a risk taker. I will travel anywhere I have the opportunity.
     
    I believe in the beauty of this world and the unique gifts each of my students has to offer. I set high expectations but promise to encourage and motivate my students in order for them to reach our goals. I value diversity and creativity, and I believe the Social Studies discipline gives students opportunities to broaden their worldly perspectives and grow both as individuals and citizens of our present age. 
     
    I look forward to a year of challenges and joys, obstacles and celebrations! The world awaits!
     
    Stay positive!
