Classes:   7th. Grade Social Studies

 

Years Teaching: I am in my 19th 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 16th 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 6th 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 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 is now attending her 2nd year of a 2-year M.F.A. program at Chapman for Screenwriting. Our son is back home after studying a semester in Denmark, and starts his senior year at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. with a Major in Medieval Studies, and is also Pre-Med. 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.
