Greetings fellow students! That's right -- I'm also a student, currently studying for my secondary social studies teaching credential, with plans to commence a Master's in Teaching program beginning summer of 2021. Social studies is a massive content area, so I'm deep in the process of relearning all things History, Economy, Government, Geography and more.
