Hi there! I am a History/Social Studies double major at CSU with a concentration in Political Science and a minor in Secondary Education. I immensely enjoy reading and writing and in my spare time, and like to discover new reading materials that aid in furthering my understanding of the teaching profession and of history as a whole. I have won several awards throughout my college career, and most recently was awarded the Social Studies scholarship for 2014-2015 from CSU’s History Department. I plan to graduate in Spring of 2016 and hope to find a teaching job in an urban setting, where I can not only educate students about History and Social Studies, but can prepare them for college as well. This is my second year assisting with the Social Studies @ CSU summer “In the Classroom” blog series; you can read my posts from the 2014 “Connecting Historical Thinking and Technology” project as well as follow my 2015 posts here.
