Jefferson High School
Welcome to Ms. Adams' World Geography and AP Human Geography Class
I was born and raised in Kentucky, but I have traveled throughout the world via the military. I chose to make the El Paso area my home because of the people.
I graduated from high school in 1984 and NMSU in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Secondary Education with a Social Studies emphasis.
My philosophy in life is NEVER settle for 'Good Enough'. Always try to do and be your very best in life. You only have one life, live it to the fullest and get the very best out of it for yourself.
My goal for my students is to influence them with my philosophy so that they will achieve at their maximum potential and also to create a love of learning and a love for people and the history of those people in my classroom environment.
I expect a safe, cooperative, and learning-enriched classroom environment. I expect my students to come prepared to learn and to share what they learn with their fellow students in cooperative group discussions. I expect ALL work to be completed and any work with a grade less than 100% to be redone as a reteaching experience.
My hope is that every one of my students will leave my classroom at the end of the year with a whole new appreciation of people, their cultures, their successes and their struggles throughout history.
