Colonial Town Meeting October 17, 1774

Hear ye! Hear ye! We have gathered here at the Town Hall to discuss recent events here in our little village. Today you will hear from Patriots, Loyalists, and undecided citizens regarding their opinions about the events unfolding in the Massachusetts Colony. You will hear from Patriots who will explain why they want to break away from Britain, Loyalists who will explain why it is foolish to break away from the most powerful empire on Earth, and some undecided citizens who will discuss how they believe there are good arguments for both sides.

About Me

My photo
I live in Cape Elizabeth with my husband, two daughters, and our cat Nessie. Our family loves to spend time outdoors together, camping, hiking, and gardening. Another past time of mine is triathlons. I have completed nine triathlons, including one Half Ironman. I loved swimming, biking, and running 70.3 miles! You might also find me cozied up with a good book in my free time. I have been teaching for 10 years in a variety of grade levels. Fifth grade is my favorite! The kids are capable of so much! I can't say I have a favorite subject to teach, but love getting students to think deeply. I enjoy getting kids to think critically and be creative in all subject areas. I often use simulations and project based learning to do this. Teambuilding and working on social skills in another major goal of mine. Teaching kids to work effectively together and use good communication skills will help prepare them for life after school.
