     Happy Teacher Facts Teach
     
    This is where we continue our inquiry about the History of our great country.  We start at about 10,000 BC and stop at 1865 with the end of the Civil War and the assassination of President Lincoln. This class is very technology oriented: We use Google, Google Classroom and twitter to explore primary and secondary sources, discuss what we see and of course debate our stance with EVIDENCE!  For students who have smart phones we will also learn to use them to strengthen our brains and not to just play games and snap pics! I am very accessible all hours of the day.  Send me a message via email or Google Classroom messaging and I will respond ASAP.  Students of course always have the choice of doing work on paper or if they do not have access to technology at home. I will always make sure they have what they need to be successful.
     
    Mallaber Bio:  I have an Associate Degree (MCC) in Business Administration and operated restaurants for over 10 years.  I also am a veteran of the Army National Guard where I was a Helicopter Weapons Specialist, Distinguished Graduate of my class and had a top secret security clearance. I went back to school later in life and earned a Bachelors in History and Teaching Certification from The College at Brockport. My certifications are in Social Studies (middle school to high school) as well as Special Education.  I earned a  Graduate Degree in Social Studies (Brockport) and am a member of Phi Alpha Theta which is a national honor society for Historians.  My main goal is to:
     
    1. help students become better readers
    2. help students become better writers 
    3. help students learn to find good sources online and use that evidence to form solid claims.  In our country you can claim just about anything, but if you do not back it up with evidence then it is not a valid stance.
     
    ***PLEASE make sure your email is up to date with the school.  This is the primary form of communication for Social Studies.
