Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Trudy Farnell
I graduated from Queens University of Charlotte with a BA in History and received my Masters Degree in History Education from East Carolina University. During the span of my teaching career, I have taught at Myers Park High School and East Mecklenburg High School in the Charlotte/Mecklenburg School System and at Smithfield-Selma High School in Johnston County.
At SSS, in addition to teaching World History, I am a member of the AVID site team, and I serve as Adviser to the Smithfield-Selma Student Association (SSSA), which is our student government, and as faculty facilitator for the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy.
My favorite historical figure is the longest reigning Tudor monarch. My current favorite "go to girl" is THE NOTORIOUS RBG.
THE PAST IS PROLOGUE
