Classes:   7th. Grade Social Studies

 

Years Teaching: I am in my 20th year of teaching. My first 3 years were with L.A. Unified in San Pedro, then I took 10 years off to stay home with my children. I am now in my 17th year with Torrance Unified. I've T.A.'ed in Kindergarten, taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades, and taught writing at the Middle School level for Palos Verdes School District.This is my 7th year of teaching 7th Grade World History at Hull.

Education: My A.B. is from Occidental College. I have a double major in History (emphasis Middle East and Africa) and Political Science (emphasis Political Theory). I briefly attended USC Law School until I realized I couldn't think like a lawyer. I earned a teaching degree in Multiple Subject instead, and have since added 2 Single Subject Credentials in Social Studies and English.

Hobbies: Spending time with my family (husband Ken Gaugh, children Natalie and Liam), my cats and Dachsie, movies, books, and travel. Our children are really our focus. Our daughter graduated in 2012 from Colgate University in upstate New York, Magnum Cum Laude with Honors in English (Creative Writing Emphasis) and a Minor in Film, and finished the M.F.A. program at Chapman for Screenwriting. She actually does make money writing, which is amazing! Our son graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C., and is the only person in the country (probably) to get into medical school with a Medieval Studies major. Liam just started his 2nd year in Virginia. Both kids are graduates of Torrance El., Hull and THS!! Go Hawks and Tartars!!

Class Academic Goals: My goals for your students are to make them think more clearly, analyze more accurately, and judge more carefully. I also want them to be aware of their place in the world community by emphasizing the cause and effect elements of historical events, and illustrating how all history is interconnected with the present.
