I'm Dr. Kelly Feinstein-Johnson and I'm excited to be part of PRA high school social studies. I have a PhD in European History and have been teaching on the university level for several years. This year, I'll be teaching AP United States History, US History, and Theater in the high school. Theater in the middle school during Spring semester. I'm passionate about my field and look forward to getting to know the students and families of PRA.
When I'm not at school ( I know, teachers have lives outside of school?), I enjoy spending time with my family, running, hiking, dancing, traveling, cooking, and rock climbing. I'm also a huge fan of science fiction and fantasy genres, as well as steam punk and musicals.
Most of my web presence for my classes will be managed through Google Classroom. Students will receive the google classroom passwords on their syllabi at the start of the semester. The classroom will include most of the work you will do, including: assignments and scrolling updates, including resources to use in class. Students will receive the access code in class and guardians may subscribe by emailing me for access. Guardians can enroll in my google classrooms and receive a guardian summary of our class, but they cannot join the classroom as a participant.
New this year! As part of my own professional development I am going to attempt to read and write about scholarly work in my field on a somewhat regular basis. You can find out about what I'm reading, read my reflections, and even read along on the "blog" tab associated with this page.
