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 foundational undertanding 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.
