Welcome to 6th Grade World Cultures

Welcome Wildcats!


I am honored to be your World Cultures teacher this 2020-2021 school year! Whether we work together virtually or in person, our World Cultures team strives to discover your uniqueness, strengths, weaknesses, and support you every step of the way. You are the reason we come to school each day! Learning extends beyond the walls of our classroom. We simply care about your future and the impact you will have as a citizen of your country and world. We truly love what we do and we cannot wait any longer to get started!


In World Cultures we will learn the basics of geography, culture, government, and economics and then begin our trip around the world exploring North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. This is the year of Social Studies! Between a worldwide pandemic, reform movements, and an election year, we are going to have an amazing year of learning, thinking critically, and exploring issues that affect the world!


I have high hopes that OIS Wildcats will soar beautifully this school year and have no doubt that you will have a positive and memorable experience! Know how much you are already loved and welcomed here at Oakcrest Intermediate!
