Welcome to my DMS website. While this is my first year at DMS, it will be my fifth year in the classroom and I am incredibly excited and honored to be a part of the DMS team. I have taught 8th grade Social Studies for the four years I have been in the classroom, along with a year of 6th grade Language Arts. I am looking forward to getting to know your student as the individual they are, and hopefully together as student, parent and teacher, we will push toward a successful year of academic and personal growth.
I am passionate about connecting our subject material and the way we run our classroom to real life. That passion continues to come into play by connecting our material to the arts and the other academic subjects on campus. One of my favorite questions is "Why are we doing math in History, Mrs. Davidson?", and my most favorite compliment of all time was when a parent walked into my room at Open House and said it looked like an art room. Connection through creativity will be stressed this year, and I hope it opens doors for your students like it did for me in college.
I am married to an amazing teacher and we have two children: Eric is a Sophomore and Emma is a Freshman, and they are both at Murrieta Mesa High School. With a husband who has taught twenty-three years at the same Murrieta Valley USD school, our allegiance is strong, but I look forward to sharing that allegiance with you and our DMS community.
