Bio: I have taught 8th grade U.S. History at Roosevelt for 15 years.  I have a B.A. degree in Ethnic Studies from UC Berkeley, an M.A. degree in History from Cal State Los Angeles, and a Ph.D. in History from Claremont Graduate University.  I hope to provide the best possible opportunities for your student to gain a foundational understanding about U.S. history, the skills necessary to critically think about why things are the way they are, and to realize the power they have to make things better!  I seek to provide support and resources for your student so they may learn and grow to their full potential.  You may contact me at: with any questions or concerns regarding this class.
