Ona Judge ran away from the household of George and Martha Washington. Born into slavery at Mount Vernon, she began working directly for Martha Washington by the age of 10. When the Washingtons left Mount Vernon for George's political career, Ona was chosen to make the trip north, visiting and eventually living in Pennsylvania and New York.

This class is being offered to tell the little-known story of Ona Judge. I am an American History teacher. I have taught at the colligate level for most of my teaching career and have been teaching K-12 through Outschool for a year. I want to help young students enjoy history and understand that it is more than facts to be recited. My goal is to teach children the history of the United States through stories. My goal is to make each class an exciting story that the child is happy to share. I want children to know that the children of the past were just like them, but without electricity or an indoor bathroom.
All materials will be provided by the instructor.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
All the material in this class is age appropriate. I do not sugar coat history and teach only up to date factual information. Students will not be called on cold. I believe that student must be comfortable in a class and they may participate at the level they feel comfortable. Students are encouraged to use the chat feature during the class, however, chat must remain on topic and is to only be used for questions and answers that students do not want to give out loud. Please email with questions or concerns before enrolling your child.
