    I am excited to be here teaching Advanced World Geography. 
    A little bit about me:  I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, but have lived in Tucson, Arizona for the past 16 years.  I recently moved to Georgia three years ago to be closer to my family.  I attended the University of Akron receiving my bachelor's degree in Political Science with a minor in History.  This year is going to be a whirlwind of information on Europe, Latin America, Canada and Australia.  Over the course of the year, I am looking forward to getting to know you and your students to make this a terrific year of fun and learning.
