Class Experience

Students will learn about history by exploring various American monuments, memorials, and landmarks.  
My excitement about American symbols began with travels to Washington, DC. I loved stepping onto the exact spot Martin Luther King Jr. stood for his iconic I Have a Dream speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Walking through the White House thrilled me as I imagined the historic individuals who had walked its halls. I have enthusiastically taught many learners about Washington, DC through books, music, and plays. I'm so excited to share my knowledge and experience with Outschool students!

I am a teacher certified to teach elementary grades 1-6 and deaf/HH students pre-K-12. I worked as an educational interpreter for several years and as an elementary teacher for many years. My education and work history have provided the skills to teach American Sign Language to learners on Outschool.
Learners will need the following for class: • Piece of paper • Pencil • Black Sharpie or another black marker • Crayons or Markers • Watercolor paints (optional for the Washington Monument class)
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Materials needed for class:
