Welcome to 8th Grade US History!

Hello, welcome to my website! I've taught both seventh and eighth grade History, as well as seventh grade English, at OMI. I have my bachelor's degree in Kinesiology, a Masters in Business Administration, and my teaching credential from Saint Mary's College of California. Before becoming a teacher, I worked in the tech world for about six years in various marketing and relationship management roles. I really enjoy being able to get to know and to work with the students at OMI.

Class Update 12.10

The cadets have recently finished working on the first half of their final, a group project analyzing how different battles of the Revolutionary War impacted the outcome of the war. For the second half of their final, the cadets will be taking a test on the content we have covered this semester. They have a study guide, and are able to use their interactive notebooks on the test. Please check with your cadet to ensure their notebook is complete and they are ready for their final! Remind your cadet to get a good night's sleep and eat breakfast during our finals week 12.17 - 12.20.

Class Update 9.24

Hi 8th Grade OMI Families,
We are well into this school year, and I enjoyed meeting many of you at Back-to-School night! I wanted to send over some updates and reminders for your cadet's success in US History this year. The cadets all have a history notebook that they are working in each day. If there were notes involved, the notes are posted on Google Classroom. I'm also able to print any notes out if needed. 
Over the past few weeks, the cadets have been learning about the 13 colonies and the foundation of the United States. We took a quiz last week on this mini-unit. If your cadet wasn't as successful as he/she hoped to be, there is still an opportunity to re-take the quiz after school this afternoon (Monday) or any day this week before school or during lunch.
If none of these times work for your cadet, they can set an appointment with me to complete their re-take at a different time. Please e-mail me directly with any questions, concerns, or to set a time to meet. I look forward to continuing to work with your cadets this year!
Ms. Sheridan
Hola Familias de OMI de 8º Grado,
Estamos en este año escolar, ¡y disfruté de conocer a muchos de ustedes en la noche de Regreso a la escuela! Quería enviar algunas actualizaciones y recordatorios para el éxito de su cadete en la historia de Estados Unidos este año. Todos los cadetes tienen un cuaderno de historia en el que están trabajando todos los días. Si hubo notas involucradas, las notas se publican en Google Classroom. También puedo imprimir notas si es necesario.
En las últimas semanas, los cadetes han estado aprendiendo acerca de las 13 colonias y la fundación de los Estados Unidos. Tomamos una prueba la semana pasada en esta mini unidad. Si su cadete no fue tan exitoso como esperaba, todavía hay una oportunidad de volver a realizar el cuestionario después de la escuela esta tarde (lunes) o cualquier día de esta semana antes de la escuela o durante el almuerzo.
Si ninguna de estas veces funciona para su cadete, pueden programar una cita conmigo para completar su nueva toma en un momento diferente. Envíeme un correo electrónico directamente con cualquier pregunta, inquietud o para programar una reunión. ¡Espero continuar trabajando con sus cadetes este año!
Sra. Sheridan
