All About Ms. Hermes

 

Ms. Hermes, the sixth-grade social studies teacher, has been getting up to some awesome stuff this week. Her students have been learning about early humans. This week they had a basket-making contest to simulate the hunter-gatherer lifestyle of early humans. Students made baskets out of paper and tested how much weight they could hold. Early humans used baskets for collecting berries and roots. As a kid, Ms. Heremes’ favorite history subject was ancient Egypt. “There were so many things that they uncovered recently and I think it brings the past and the present together.” 

 

Ms. Hermes has many other interests outside of history. She also teaches the yearbook elective. In the yearbook, they have been getting used to using layout pro and getting ready to host the yearbook cover contest, which just opened this week. Her favorite ice cream flavor is mango, and she enjoys mixing new flavored lattes.
