Candice Stinson
    Upper Merion Area High School
    Room No.:
    Social Studies Teacher





        In 2005, I graduated from Villanova University where I majored in sociology with an honors concentration. This is my fourteenth year teaching at Upper Merion Area High School. I received my master's in education from Villanova University, and my ABD in Curriculum, Instruction, and Staff Development from Widener University. 
       My two certifications, in social studies and in English, allow me to combine two of my passions. These two areas are not mutually exclusive, and they should not be treated as such. How would history be told or society described without representations through various forms of writing and literature? How could literature be read without analyzing the history and societal contexts of the piece being read?
        In addition to teaching, I am one of the SADD sponsors and the ASA sponsor. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, especially my four year old son, Evan, and my two year old son, Parker, who always keep me on my toes! Dancing, playing tennis, traveling, and, yes, watching reality TV (Big Brother and Amazing Race in particular) are some of the things I love to do. My favorite band is the Counting Crows, and one of my favorite books is Hope in the Darkness by Rebecca Solnet.
