Welcome to U.S. History with Mrs. Keating!

Hello Students and Parents!
I'm excited to take you on a journey of American history from the first Americans to 1900.  We will explore the first people living on the continent, the reasons behind the founding of our nation, the American Revolution, the Constitution, the Civil War, westward movement, industry, and urban growth. 
Through critical thinking and questioning, you will take on the role of a historian.  Together we will discover how the country has grown and evolved!  
This is my 24th year teaching U.S. History at Fisher Middle School. I'm the most veteran teacher on campus, having started in 1999. I have my BA in Sociology from U.C. Santa Cruz and my Master's in Education from National University. I attended Union Middle School and Leigh High School. My daughter is a 3rd-grade student at Van Meter. I also come from a long line of educators.

As 8th graders, this is your last year at Fisher. Let's work together to make it your best year!
