In this class, students will be able to analyze and identify the symbols, secrets and stories behind the United States one-dollar bill, the history lesson in our pockets.

Class experience

Students will be able to both identify the symbols and the thinking behind the symbols used by the founding fathers when they designed the U.S. one-dollar bill.  Also, students will create their own dollar bills, using established U.S. symbols or symbols of their own.
I am a certified elementary teacher K – 6, and a certified teacher of English 7 -12 in the state of New Jersey with 10 years of classroom experience.  Through a decade of classroom teaching, and countless hours of professional development I am confident my skill set and practical experience will be an asset to your child’s learning the symbols, secrets and stories of the U.S. one-dollar bill.

More importantly, I am a history buff, and I love the stories behind history. Numerous times I have taught this lesson. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and passion about history, and symbolism with my students.
