About Mrs. Stewart
This is my seventh year teaching Jr. High Social Studies. This is my thrid year at St. Damian in Oak Forest. I also am the chairperson for St. Damian's Student Council. I have taught in both the public and private school sectors. I have a Bachelor's Degree in History and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. I also hold a Type 09 (Grades 6-12) and a Type 75 (Administrative) Illinois certificates as well. I was President of Future Teachers in High School and I always wanted to be a teacher. I have guest lectured at Trinity Christian College. I love Social Studies and I strive to be enthusiastic while make learning enjoyable and educational!
When not at school, I live in Palos Heights with my husband Tim, and our three sons, Joe, Ben and Matt. I enjoy watching hockey and the Chicago Blackhawks are my favorite team.

6th Grade World HIstory
In 6th Grade we learn about World History. We cover Ancient Civilizations. Ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece are covered. We cover Non-Western Civilizations, too. We learn about Ancient India, China and Africa. We also do a Comparative Religion unit. We are currently using a brand new textbook and workbook. Our textbooks are published by the Catholic Textbook Project. We are one of the first Catholic schools in the Chicagoland area to use these textbooks. It offers a Catholic worldview of history while addressing Common Core Standards.
