I have taught in Johnston County for 15 years. I attended Slippery Rock University and come to North Carolina via Pennsylvania, where I am from originally. GO STEELERS!!!

Ancient World History
The focus for sixth grade social studies is to expand students’ understanding of history through the study of people and events before the era of European exploration and settlement. This study focuses not only on the significance of geography in the development of the human story but also on the everyday lives, problems, and accomplishments of the people and their roles in developing social, economic, and political structures of the major civilizations.
