Hello, this is my 8th year at Adele Harrison and my 15th year as a credentialed teacher (having taught for seven happy years at Elsie Allen High School in Santa Rosa). I grew up in Petaluma, California and attended UC Santa Cruz, where I obtained my B.A. in History as well as in Latin American & Latino Studies in 1999. While in college, I married my boyfriend, who is an immigrant from Mexico, and this year we celebrate 20 years of marriage. I then got my Masters in Teaching degree and Single Subject Social Science BCLAD Credential in 2001 from UCSC. We moved to Sonoma at that point and have lived here ever since. I have two older sons from my husband’s previous relationship who have already blessed us with three grandchildren and I also have two younger sons, who are now ten and twelve years-old. I have taught all levels of history from 6th grade to 12th grade and have enjoyed them all, but is has been a dream come true to teach history in Spanish, my other great love. When not teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling, hiking, films, and visiting with family. » read more...

This course covers American history starting with the Revolutionary War period, then covering the basic tenets of the Constitution, then moving to American expansion. We spend a bit of time on the wave of immigration at the middle of the 19th century as well as on the reformers of that time period. The last third of the year, we study the differences between the North and the South, slavery, and the conflicts over slavery, culminating in the Civil War, finishing up with the period of Reconstruction. The Dual Immersion classes cover the same material but in Spanish. » read more...
