|Welcome to 6th Grade World History!
Hi Everyone! Welcome to 6th grade!
My name is Kathy Nunez and I am so excited to start this 2019-2020 school year with you!
This is my 19th year teaching at Altadena and my fifteenth year teaching 6th grade world history. I love history and traveling to historical places, so the 6th grade curriculum is right up my alley.
I grew up in northern Wisconsin in a family of teachers. Both my parents were teachers and both my grandmothers. I am of course, a die-hard Packer fan. Besides following them, I also love to read historical fiction, hike, and travel.
Following along those lines, this summer I hiked 88 miles along the north coast of Northern Ireland over the course of six days. After the hike, we flew to Bath, England; home of the ancient Roman baths and the city they named Aqua Sullis. I have also hiked Hadrian's Wall in nothern England, visited Stonehenge, the Roman colosseum and Parthenon, the ruins of Pompeii, the the Parthenon in Greece.
Additionally, seven years ago I was chosen to teach summer school English at a high school in Wroclaw, Poland. Teaching in Poland was an experience I will never forget. It was so rewarding to be able to combine my love of teaching, history, and travel in a new cultural environment.
I cannot wait to share these experiences with you all and I look forward to meeting you and making our own new memories this year!
