About Me

Hello Cardinals,
 
    Welcome to a brand new school year! I hope you enjoyed the summer and are ready for a busy, yet productive school year. I am a new Social Studies Teacher at Lawndale High School, and teach U.S. History, World History, and Dual Immersion Cultural Geography. I hold a B.A. in History and a minor in Spanish from the California State University of Long Beach and have evelven years of experience working with youth k-12.
 
    Regardless of the class you are taking, you will fully engage in class discussions, create projects, write papers and explore different interpretations of history through the analysis of a variety of primary and secondary sources: documentaries, photographs, audios, art, political cartoons and speeches among others. You will practice, critical thinking skills and will learn to think like a historian through the following historical thinking skills:
Evidence and Interpretation
Periodization
Cause and Consequence
Comparison
 
   If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please contact me at any time.
