It is a delight to teach sixth grade social studies at Sinagua Middle School. Sixth grade is a unique time for students and for parents. In sixth grade, students learn and grow both as scholars and individuals.

Social studies in sixth grade focuses on world history. We will time travel the world, especially focusing on early human cultures and the development of different world religions. As learners, we will wonder about the ways humans influence the world around them.

It can be challenging to know just how to best navigate middle school systems. Please email me anytime with your questions or concerns.
