I have not been accepted into the Single Subject Program for Social Science, but I intend to reapply at the next opportunity. I spent three years teaching courses in the Navy. These courses typically ran from one to two weeks and were geared toward junior personnel who tended to be in their twenties. I have volunteered in my son's grade school classes, which has definitely given me a healthy respect for what teachers accomplishing in the younger grade levels.
I have a Master of Arts in U.S History from Claremont Graduate University. My goal in this class is to develop skills for technologically-based social science lessons that go beyond Power Point presentations. I want to share with kids in a way that really captures their attention.
