A weekly world geography class for students to travel virtually around the globe. Learners will locate countries on a map, learn about capital cities, flags, culture, animals, landmarks, and more! (Great for homeschool social studies)

US Grade 7 - 10
Follows Teacher-Created Curriculum
This class is taught in English.
  • This goal of this course is to expose learners to the different cultures and traditions around the world. I believe this exposure enriches the educational experience for learners and helps them to become an informed global citizen. As they learn to locate countries on the map, their neighboring countries, the physical and human characteristics of a place, it fosters cultural awareness and appreciation. This helps students to develop tolerance and respect for diversity.
I have been teaching geography for the past three years and I absolutely enjoy sharing my passion with young learners. My area expertise is in the social sciences. I hold a Bachelors in Sociology & Social work (with minor in Economics) and an Mphil in Sociology. I am currently pursuing a graduate degree program in Education. I consider myself a life-long learner and continue to take professional development courses with organizations such as National Geographic Society.
