Welcome to Social Studies
My name is Ms. Bober and I teach junior high Social Studies. I am looking forward to helping students explore history through projects, small group work, and research activities. We will be analyzing primary and secondary sources, studying images, and working on literacy skills. I hope to make history meaningful to students, instill a passion for learning and increase critical thinking skills.
This will be my fifth year in education and my third year teaching Social Studies at St. Mary. I graduated from DePaul University with my Bachelors degree in Secondary Education with a concentration in Social Sciences where I also received my teaching license with my middle school endorsement in Social Studies and high school Social Sciences and History.
