Teaching Philosophy: I believe that the study of other cultures is the answer to how the United States evolves in the world. Here in Montana, it is very important to learn about the larger world around us. As times change and cultures clash, it is imperative to understand how we can learn from each other and help to solve these clashes in a peaceful way. The study of social studies is designed for that purpose. The generation of tomorrow must learn from the triumphs and tragedies of the past in order to shape the future of this planet.
