Mrs. Kate Guymon
Welcome to Humanities!
I began my teaching career in Texas and moved home to Tucson in 2016 to teach at La Cima. Although I have lived and worked in several states, I am a native Tucsonan and a graduate of Amphi High, so I was thrilled to come back to my hometown to teach kids from the schools and neighborhoods that I grew up in. I love teaching and am so excited about teaching the REACH/ Humanities Class!
Core Educational Belief
I believe in my students. I believe in their families and in the value of thier personal experiences. I believe in thier intelligence and creativity, and in their dedication to their own education. As a first generation college graduate myself, I believe fully in my student's ability to overcome adversity and experience true success.
In our class, students are nurtured as well as challeneged. We employ AVID strategies, Socractic exploration, and student-driven, project based learning to enhance and deepen our understanding of the subject. In addtion to learning social studies content, we also explore the unique challenges often faced by gifted learners.
