Huntsville High School
Economics and Government
This is my 5th year at Huntsville High School, teaching Economics, AP
Macroeconomics, and Government.
Before I came to HHS, I taught 7th and 8th grade math at Providence. My
family moved to Huntsville from St. Louis, Missouri right before the 2006-2007
school year- in St. Louis I taught Math and American History.
I hold a bachelor's degree in Political Science from Auburn University. I
returned to school in St.Louis to obtain certification to teach, and in the
process completed degree requirements in general history, secondary
education,and received a minor in economics.
My husband and I have 3 children: Rob is 11 and in the sixth grade at Holy
Spirit, and Katie is 7 and in the second grade at Holy Spirit. Daniel is 2
I do have a life outside of school: I read, especially science fiction and
alternate history, play several musical instruments (most notably trombone and
flute), like to swim, play raquetball, and just hang out with my family. I
also lead my daughter's Girl Scout Brownie Troop.
Economics and Government can be challenging courses. My goal is to show
students the relevance of both economics and our system of government in the
greater global community. In Economics, we will learn about different
economic systems, as well as the benefits and problems that correspond with
each. By discussing various challenges facing the world, we will see how
economics shapes much of the world we live in. In Government, we will look at
how our system of Government has evolved, what the US government's
responsibilities are, and how we can all be good citizens of our nation.
Along the way, we will also try to have some fun!
