Miss Lauren Santarelli
Welcome to 8th Grade U.S. History! This will be my second year at Prosper ISD and as an 8th grade U.S. History teacher. I am excited to help students prepare for civic competency, college and their future careers by helping them engage in historical inquiry over material that encompasses various perspectives and cultural values. I will also be coaching 8th grade girls athletics at Reynolds (volleyball, soccer & track).
I absolutely love history, but I especially enjoy sharing it with my students. My favorite topics include, Colonization, Westward Expansion, Jacksonian America, and Post Civil War Reconstruction.
I am originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Go Broncos! After Colorado, I moved to Jefferson City, Tennessee and graduated with my Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and Education from Carson-Newman University. At Carson-Newman University I was a dual sport athlete in both indoor and sand volleyball. After Carson-Newman, I attended Auburn University and received my Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction - History Education. War Eagle! While at Auburn University I wrote my dissertation on the topic of supporting students in the process of disciplined historical inquiry when deliberating over persistent historical issues that contain ethical dimensions.
One thing that my students should know about me is that I love to travel! So far I have been to 28 different countries and will add number 29 this summer.
I am excited for the 2017-2018 school year! Go Eagles!
Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions about the material, your child's progress or athletics.
