Arizona State University - Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education with an emphasis on History
Welcome to Mr. Carpenter's Social Studies page!!
I am originally from Phoenix, Arizona. I became a Social Studies teacher in 2005. I taught in Phoenix for 6 years before moving to St. Louis. I have been teaching for St. Louis Public Schools since 2014, and at Nahed Chapman since 2016. I love the diversity of our school community and enjoy learning from my students as much as they learn from me.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Secondary Education, with an emphasis in History, from Arizona State University and am currently working towards a master's degree at Webster University in Teaching English as a Second Language.
I love teaching middle schoolers and building relationships is the foundation of my teaching philosophy. I subscribe to the saying "students don't care how much you know until they know how much you care".
