Mrs. Snell - 8th Grade - American History - Home Page

Welcome to 8 Arctic Individuals and Societies!

Hi! I am Mrs. Snell, and I am excited to be your teacher this year!

We will be learning about American History, from the "Age of Exploration" to the "American Civil War" (1500s - 1865).

A little bit about me . . . I have been teaching Social Studies in Douglas County for 22 years, 19 of those at Ranch View. I also have a Master's Degree in School Counseling, and spent one year as a Counselor here at RVMS. I have a husband who is a music teacher, and three wonderful kids! As a Colorado native, I love to spend my free time enjoying the outdoors with my family and friends. I love working with 8th Graders and teaching American History. There are so many fun and interesting ways to appreciate our country's past, as well as the "history" of today!


Supplies: Please plan to get:

- A 3-Ring Binder (1-2 inches is fine).

This will be your in-class binder.

- 5 dividers and plenty of lined paper (either wide or college lined in

fine), for your binder.

- Please also get a 2-pocket folder for homework and/or studying notes.

- You will also need some other general supplies, such as notecards,


pencils, paper, colored pencils, rulers, etc., which will also be
used in all of your classes.

This is going to be a great year! Please feel free to contact me anytime you have questions, concerns, or ideas. My email is
