I am so excited to be here! This is my first year at FMS and I am looking forward working with all of my students. I was not a history fan when I was in 8th grade, but my interest in history has grown over the years. I cannot wait to share and discuss the history of our nation with my students. Some people ask "Why do we have to know this?" I tell them "We learn from the past so that we do not make the same mistakes." If you think about it, everything that you learn in school is from history. It was all created a very long time ago. It is the way in which it is taught is that is new and innovative.
