World History

Welcome, we are going to have a great semester!

I graduated from Agnes Scott College and I have been teaching in Dekalb County schools since 1993. I am currently working on a Masters degree in Instructional Technology through Kennesaw State University. I am 55 years old so as you can see education is a lifelong process. You never stop learning. I am certified to teach every field of social studies from 6th through 12 grade. I am also certified as a resource teacher in special education from Pre-K through 12th grade. I love teaching and I particularly love working with teenagers. I enjoy teenagers because they are still open to new ideas and trying different things. They are not stuck in one place yet. They can still define who they want to be and they have the courage and determination to get there. Teenagers do not just accept the way things are they want to know and understand why and most importantly they often ask, why not?

Your 1st Assignment

I created this autobiographical flyer about myself in order for you to have an example to follow. For your 1st assignment I want you to create an autobiographical flyer about yourself to share with me and the class. Follow the directions below:


1. Go to https://www.smore.com

2. Create your own account, write down your username and password, keep it someplace safe where you can get to it at school or home. For example create a contact on your phone called Smore.com and enter the username and password instead of phone numbers.

3. Click Create a flyer
