Hello! My name is Glynnis Farleigh and I am a second-year History Major and Digital Studies Minor and education student at the University of Mary Washington, in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I am an M.Ed candidate in UMW’s College of Education, where I will be attending graduate school in the Fall of 2020.
I created this domain in order to showcase my relevant coursework in both History and Education, as well as for general uses.
In the summers, I work as a summer camp lead at a local preschool and Kindergarten. During the school year, I have amassed two semesters worth of practicum experience in Fredericksburg area middle and high school classrooms. In the near future, I hope to teach history to middle or high school students! Some of my relevant work from has been showcased on UMW’s College of Education Facebook page.
I have taken relevant courses in Education focussing on teaching and learning, instructional design and assessment, and special education, all for the secondary level. I also have two semesters worth of practicum experience with middle and high schools near my university. I have also taken History courses pertaining to Western Civilizations, Asian Civilizations, and Stuart and Hanoverian Britain, as well as two courses pertaining to methodology.
At UMW, and I am involved with both the Student Education Association and National Education Association, the UMW Historic Preservation Club, and Firearms Club of UMW. On campus, I work as a Resident Assistant in an upperclass residence hall.
In my free time, I enjoy raising and growing plants, special effects makeup, and I have an interest in American and British history. I enjoy spending time both in Downtown Fredericksburg and alongside the Rappahannock River. Additionally, I have a particular fondness for the social and cultural history of death across cultures, as well as an interest in new discourse regarding funerary and mourning practices. My favorite novel is Jane Eyre, and my favorite work of nonfiction is Caitlin Doughty’s Smoke Gets In Your Eyes.
