Mrs. Carver's 6th Grade History - Ancient Civilizations

Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Sara Carver, and this is my first year here at Beverly Vista Middle School. I am so excited to be a part of the Bulldog family. 💚
 
I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO (Missouri, not Kansas, and yes, there is a difference!) and graduated from the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma. My path to teaching was a little non-traditional--I spent 10 years as an event manager working with high level special events, first in Tulsa, OK and then in Houston, TX, where I worked with the Houston Texans NFL team and other national level sporting and special events. 
 
After I moved to California, I spent time working at the University of San Diego and the University of California - San Diego. This is really where the pull to teach grew strong. I learned that I really loved guiding and mentoring the student workers, so I decided to combine my love of history with my desire to help build a better world through mentoring the younger generation. Enter teaching! Before arriving at BVMS, I spent four years teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade history for King-Chavez Academy of Excellence in San Diego, CA.
 
I am excited to share my passion for history and geography with the students at Beverly Vista! Go Bulldogs!
