LOOKING AHEAD

Next week we will be watching the Disney Musical Newsies in Class. The movie is a great representation of our Industry Unit. Students will see what living/working conditions during the turn of the century were like. They will also see how kids their age rose to challenge, protest, and later went on strike for fair wages in New York.

I am thrilled to be teaching Social Studies for Trailblazer team this year. In my spare time, I run around to dance class and football or baseball depending on the season. I love teaching and learning from my students.
