In this episode, I interviewed Social Studies teacher, Beth Morgan who is a first year high school history teacher. Fun Fact: Beth also did some of her pre-service teaching work with me! Originally from the small town of Bishop California Beth came to Nevada to pursue higher education in 2017 and graduated from UNR in 2020 at the height of the pandemic. She has a degree in history as well as secondary education and is passionate about rethinking social studies education. She plans to continue her education at UNR to work on social studies curriculum and advocate for school reform.
Beth shares her experience with student teaching during the Covid pandemic, what her philosophy is about student engagement and what she is working on to be part of improving or enhancing social studies education for students.
