Harvey, Meredith (Social Studies)

Welcome to Mrs. Harvey's
US History I Class!

I believe the field of Social Studies is so critical in building 21st century skills.  History helps provide a deeper connection to how our past influences every day life. By studying history, students will develop the following skills: analyzing data, articulating facts and points of view in discussion and writing, and to better understand the world around us.
It's also a lot of fun!

I grew up in the Washington D.C area, and am fortunate to have spent so much time enjoying our nation's capital! I even had the amazing experience of interning at the Smithsonian's American History Museum!

I received my undergraduate degree in History, with a concentration in US History and Public History from Appalachian State University, class of 1994. My husband & I then moved to Atlanta, GA, where I received a Master's in Secondary Education, Social Studies from GA State University, 2000. I've also taken graduate history courses at Western University. 

In Atlanta I had a whirlwind of career experiences in Archaeology, working in the Education Dept. at the High Museum of Art, and teaching High School Social Studies.

Our family moved to Asheville with our two young twins in 2004. Since then I've worked at Johnston Elementary as the Digital Lab Assistant. 

I love being a busy mom, keeping up with my high school kids. I love hiking and enjoy running an antique booth with my parents. I'm so happy to call Asheville my home.
