Hello Bell School! My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Saint Mary's College in Indiana, a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist. My love for social studies was instilled in me by my dad who loves to talk about history. My parents always included historical sites on our family vacations.
