Harvey, Meredith (Social Studies)

Welcome to Mrs. Harvey's  Class!

I believe the field of Social Studies is critical in building 21st century skills.  Social studies helps provide a deeper understanding of how our past influences our every day lives. It builds deeper connections to our community. It develops the following skills: analyzing data, articulating facts and points of view in discussions and writing, and to better understand the world around us.

I grew up in the Washington D.C area, and am fortunate to have spent time enjoying our nation's capital. I even had the opportunity 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 moved to Atlanta, GA, where I received a master's degree 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 twins in 2004. Since then I've worked at Johnston Elementary as the Digital Lab Assistant. I have worked at Owen HS as a spit social studies/Media Assistant for 4 years.

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