Girls need to see how strong women can be to help them see how strong they are. Let's look back in history to find our inspiration today.

In college, I received my Bachelor of Art in History, with a focus on elementary education. After college, I spent the next 20 years as a teacher in a brick-and-mortar school. I started out in the elementary setting teaching all of the subjects, but I quickly moved up to middle school where I spent a few years teaching English. Over the last decade, I was exclusively a 7th and 8th-grade history teacher.  I taught Ancient History and American History. Currently, I am the Education Manager at the National Canal Museum and Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.  That job allows me to create learning experiences for children of all ages.  I feel very comfortable in this area and pride myself on making, what can be considered a dry subject, interesting, engaging, and relevant to the elementary and teenage person.

We will discuss topics that affect women's rights.  Violence and oppression of women as well as issues surrounding racism and religion may be brought up.  I will make sure that all topics remain age-appropriate.  However, girls will come away from this class understanding that we as a gender have been oppressed for centuries by men. They will also understand that women of color and minority religions were oppressed even more than Caucasian, Christian women.
