Learners will understand differences in postage stamps value, design and history. Learners will view postage stamps from around the world. Learners will show and describe stamps they have found to be interesting and the story behind their postage stamps. Learners will be able to explain events and people that have been memorialized on postage stamps.
I began collecting postage stamps at age ten. I find stamps fascinating and love unique stamps that tell a story or represent culture. As a middle school teacher for over a decade, I have lots of experience instructing learners both in-person and online. As an athletic coach, I've taught many skills to middle school and high school age youth while fostering teambuilding and socialization among peers.

Learners will be able to start collecting postage stamps if this is something that interests them after the class has ended.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
