My name is John Giles, and I am in my third year teaching fourth grade English Language Arts and Social Studies. I believe in a student-centered approach to teaching that incorporates engaging lessons that challenge students. I am certified for grades 4-9 for English Language Arts and Social Studies and particularly enjoy creating resources for American History. Many of my lessons are interdisciplinary, integrating English Language Arts concepts and skills into Social Studies activities. I am a graduate of The Ohio State University and currently teach in Ohio.
