   Welcome to Null Middle School! I am excited to start another year in Sheldon.  This is my 12th year in education and all have been in Sheldon.   I hope that you can find this class interesting, informative- and FUN! I will be incorporating a variety of strategies and activities throughout the year to help each student do their very best.  We will be focusing on the following concepts in each unit:  History, Government, Economics, Geography, Culture, Citizenship, Technology, and Social Studies Skills.  You may visit the Helpful Tools tab on my webpage to explore these concepts with your child at home.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the year.
