Degrees and Certifications:
WELCOME BACK 8TH GRADERS!! This year is a little different with Social Studies and Science as you will be taking both classes all year long.
I have been teaching at Princeton Middle School since 2000. I am currently the 8th grade Social Studies teacher. Social Studies/History has always been a passion of mine and I enjoy sharing that passion with my students.
I communicate dates for assignments due, quizzes and tests with my students and/or parents through Talking Points as well as Google Classroom. I urge all students to join so that you can be kept up to date on deadlines and dates for tests/quizzes. Parents are welcome to join in too, but please let me know who your student is.
I am posting the entire 8th grade supply list - once you know your schedule you will know exactly what to get for your specific classes/teachers. Please have these supplies on the first day of school as we will hit the ground running. My Social Studies specific supply list is also posted on another page within this site for your convenience. I look forward to working with your students in the 22/23 school year.
