I am a fifth year Social Studies co-teacher, and I am very excited about you learning American Government this year. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy shopping and spending time with my book club. I also enjoy traveling, as well as experiencing anything new.

You will learn about several political aspects in American Government this year, including: Federalism, Congress, Electoral Process, and The Legislature. This class is designed for 9th grade students, and is a required course for graduation. Upon completing American Government this year, you will have developed the background knowledge that you will need to be successful in your World History, U.S. History, and Economics classes in the future.
