My name is Ms. Sukovich and this is my seventh year teaching Social Studies at Perth Amboy High School. I love talking about history, especially World War II and the different aspects of the war, Native American history, and the Renaissance, to name a few! I also love interacting with the wonderful students at the Freshmen Academy! This year I am teaching US History I , Financial Literacy, and a brand new elective, Freshmen Survey.
I know this school year is very different from any other school year that we have experienced, but I intend to run my class very much like I would run it if we were in person. Classes will be conducted on Google Meet every day and students will follow a typical schedule. Students will be expected to have their cameras on during the entire class, but maybe muted at various times throughout to ensure students can hear important information. Students will also be expected to utilize Google Classroom to complete and turn in assignments. All of my students have been invited to join his/her respective Google Classroom.
In US History I, we will cover many topics including the American Revolution, Civil War and Reconstruction, and the Great Depression. The course is intended to give students an overview of early American history and show how our young country developed. I like my class to be very interactive, allowing students to work with each other and the material. We will look at a lot of primary sources, analyzing and interpreting them to better understand the past. In addition, I also love talking about current events and begin every class with a short news clip.
When I'm not teaching, I love to spend time with my family. I have two children--a son who is 4 1/2 and a daughter who is 2 1/2. I also love to watch reality TV and read magazines/books.
