Welcome to 7th Grade US History for 2020-2021

This year we will be studying US History from 1865 to the present.  We will start with a unit on the Civil War to get students caught back up and then we will continue with Reconstruction and then move forward to the present day.  

This is my 3rd year here at Potomac Middle School.  I spent many years working in government contracting before moving back to teaching several years ago.  I am originally from Connecticut and earned both my Bachelor of Arts in History and my Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of New Hampshire (I did attend the University of Miami for my first two years so I am a Hurricane fan too)!  I have two girls, both of them in PWCS schools.  I also have a cat and two dogs that keep us on our toes at home.  

For first quarter all of our work will be done through Canvas.  Please make sure you have logged in to Canvas and your Office 365 account before school begins.

Attached are links to videos for parents on how to access Canvas, please review and contact the school if you have additional questions.
