Goshen Middle School


 Welcome to the wonderful world of Social Studies.  This is my 19th year in the teaching profession.  I have an associates degree from the University of Cincinnati, a Bachelors degree from Northern Kentucky University and a Masters degree from Marygrove College.  In addition to my degrees, I also hold a Master Teacher rating from the state of Ohio. Albert Einstein once said, "Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think."  There will be many opportunities for myself and students to "think" this year.  I look forward to the daily challenges and ah-ha moments.
