Mrs. Moorhead's Social Studies Webpage

Hello 8-3 students and families :)  I am so excited to meet and get to know all of you this year.
This year marks my 11th year teaching 8th grade Social Studies at Memorial School. While this year is certainly going to be unlike any other, I am fully committed to making this year as interesting and exciting regardless of whether I see you in class or through the computer! My mission as a history teacher has, and always will be, to debunk the myth that history is boring- that couldn't be further from the truth and I intend to prove it!
Something I find truly fascinating about this year is that while we will be studying United States history, we will also be living it!
