Hello and welcome to Mrs. Bet's 8th Grade Social Studies page at Carson Junior High! I am so excited for the 2017-2018 school year and the opportunity that I will have to "Take a Trip through History" with your students!
Throughout the year, I will be posting powerpoint presentations, assignments, and information about what students are doing in class on this webpage. Please check the page for student missing assignments. Feel free to contact me with any questions (e-mail is best)!
Just a little bit about me: I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio and then attended college in Provo, Utah at Brigham Young University, where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and International Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Currently, I am working towards my Master's Degree in Secondary Education at Arizona State University. I taught English as a Second Language classes to teenagers, college students, and adults in Utah before moving to Arizona in 2016 and teaching at Carson. I just recently got married (July 2017) to a fellow teacher; my husband teaches Anatomy at Westview High School in Tolleson.
On a personal note, I love hiking, reading, running, playing percussion, traveling, and being in the great outdoors. I've been a history lover ever since the 6th grade when I read Number the Stars by Louis Lowry. I really enjoy working with my students and I am looking forward to a great year at Carson!
