Find Your Civic Voice

Hi, I'm Ms. Chance. I teach United States history and Leadership. 
I am passionate about history, developing leaders on campus, and encouraging students to embrace the blessing of our stellar public school system in our country. I use Canvas as a learning management system in my classroom and offer the opportunity for students and parents to sign up for Remind to receive reminders for my class via text. My goal in all my classes is that students develop not only academically and personally, but also find and form their civic voice and begin to engage in the democratic process. Because of this civic voice emphasis, my class is discussion based and is most efficient and powerful when students engage, come to class, and complete assignments in a timely fashion. I would encourage all families to discuss current events both locally and globally to increase their students' engagement in my class and other classes as well.
