About Michelle


Bio

I am currently a middle school teacher who is credentialed for both Social Sciences and Middle School Science. I have taught for 6 years in schools with high ELL populations and low reading ability so I am familiar with helping develop reading and writing techniques as well. I have taught grades 6, 7, 8, 9, and 12, including an AP Human Geography class with a high passing rate.

I have tutored students in 5th and 9th grade previously, one in AP Human Geography who was able to pass the...

I am currently a middle school teacher who is credentialed for both Social Sciences and Middle School Science. I have taught for 6 years in schools with high ELL populations and low reading ability so I am familiar with helping develop reading and writing techniques as well. I have taught grades 6, 7, 8, 9, and 12, including an AP Human Geography class with a high passing rate.

I have tutored students in 5th and 9th grade previously, one in AP Human Geography who was able to pass the exam. My 5th grader's writing improved greatly as well. I enjoy working with students who are trying to figure things out, hopefully making it so that they can make the connections themselves.

I have an M.A in History, specializing in the Ancient World, Asia, and Early Modern Europe and two B.A.s in History and Social Sciences. Though I am currently teaching Science I am constantly keeping up with pedagogy and expanding my knowledge of history. Together with two other teachers I have completely redone the 7th grade curriculum to be thematic, though I am skilled in the individual civilizations as well. This last summer I was part of a Colonial Williamsburg teacher group, as well as a civics group in San Luis Obispo.

If you are having trouble with making sense of things, of wondering why something happened, of why you should care at all, you should contract me. I have a way of making the world and its wonders make sense, hopefully I can make you see the wonder as well.

I have taught American history, and even though I might not currently teach the subject I still develop my abilities in this area, such as when I attended Colonial Williamsburg development for teachers.

I teach history with a geography based emphasis. If one does not know where places are or what the environment is like, one has a hard time understanding why events happen there.
Social Studies,

Social Studies

I have spent most years teaching different levels of Social Sciences, from 6th grade to 12 grade, both basic and Advanced Placement. I have rewritten curriculum for world history and and familiar if not excellent in each area of Social Studies.
World History

I have taught and rewritten World History curriculum to be thematic. As a result I have an excellent understanding of each individual civilization as well. I have taught all middle school grades as well as most high school grades.
