6A Social Studies Information

Welcome to sixth grade social studies.  I have been teaching in Evergreen Park School District 124 for nineteen years.  The first fourteen years were spent teaching sixth grade at Southwest School.  I began teaching at Central Middle School when they moved the sixth grade here.  The first three years at Central,  I taught sixth grade science.  Beginning last year, I started teaching social studies at Central, which is my favorite subject.  In sixth grade we learn about the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, and Rome.  We are adding a study of Mesopotamia and China to our content this year.  We also do a brief review of the five themes of geography at the beginning of the first quarter.  
Some of my interests and hobbies include reading, photography, and swimming.  I am an avid football fan with a preference for Michigan (Go Blue!).  I am a first time grandmother of a beautiful little girl named Éilís.  
You can learn more about what the sixth graders are doing on your student's Google Classroom page.
