Native American or immigrant?
College graduate or high school drop-out?
Teacher or student?

What about all of the above? Though one may be influenced by a past, that past is not the defining future of a person. Paths are changeable, minds are malleable, a future of success is the unwritten story of us all.

I hold a current Nebraska Teacher's License- Social Studies endorsement (7-12). However, I am also an experienced gardener, cook, painter and tile-setter (artistic/mosaic). One of my favorite authors once wrote "Specialization is for insects"- people should have a wide range of abilities and skills sets and I strongly encourage students to learn new hobbies or activities.

Different students have different learning approaches and different learning needs. While the goal is always to ensure the subject is understood and applied, it is also necessary to help students strengthen their growth areas and maintain high standards in their areas of proficiency. By offering content and applicable examples students can internalize and experience education. None of us learned to walk by reading an instruction manual! Hands-on projects and demonstrations help the student practice the information. In this way students earn and own their learning with a memorable event or activity.

Social Studies

Social Studies encompasses many disciplines. From where we began as societies and civilizations through all of the incredible innovations to where we are the changes are recorded in history. From World History, we see the beginnings of civilizations- agriculture, writing, culture, government, economics, sociology, psychology and technology.

My love of history began through historical novels, which begged questions. How did the first maker of the wheel- the person who watched a round rock roll downhill- envision a use for a rock with a hole drilled through it? Fashion the first axle, cart, or other conveyance? What brave soul first tasted a tomato and used it for cooking? (A South American native)

Current social studies disciplines also include Economics- the study of how allocating resources can meet the needs of a society and Sociology- the study of society, of being social, the mores and ideals, fitting in, or not and how cultures mesh or clash within societies.

History is a time line, all points plotted- We can look at anything today and find its origin and perhaps chart its future...
