Hello! My name is Sarah Hightower and I am your child's Georgia Social Studies Teacher! I absolutely love this subject! I have written many research papers about Georgia history, primarily regarding the Civil Rights Movement. I am currently pursuing my Masters in History after school to ensure that I know as much as I can about not only my content, but history in general. I started teaching at Gardner Newman Middle School in 2017 and am now entering into my fourth year as a teacher.
Utilizing Canvas, students will complete discussions, vocabulary, and quizzes on a weekly basis. Students will also receive readings to annotate and summarize, along with their study guides. It is important for every student to complete the assignments and tasks given to not only benefit their grade, but also their education. Parents and students can reach me through Canvas or my school e-mail at email@example.com. I will be available through e-mail from 6 AM to 8 PM. After 8 PM, I will not be available for a response until 6 AM that next morning. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you or your child has any questions for me!
