Hello students and parents!
I am Ms. Raffety.
I am so thrilled to be joining the staff at Destiny High School this year and to be teaching World History Part A and B and African American History Part A and B. I am a Milwaukee native, born and raised, and I just moved back home to teach at Destiny High School and to work with all of you. I have a Bachelors degree in history from the University of Illinois at Chicago and I recently graduated with a Masters in history from California State University at Los Angeles. My goal for the school year is to inspire my students to love history, and, more importantly, to love reading history. I want to embolden you with the words of some of the greatest historical figures, and encourage you to put aside your cell phone, and pick up a book instead! On a personal note, I am one of four children, and when I am not teaching all of you, I love going backcountry hiking in our numerous national parks all across the nation, reading, playing with my four nephews, camping, and going to all the fests on the Milwaukee lakefront, especially Irish Fest, because I am part Irish ;) I thoroughly enjoy the study of history, and I look forward to working with all of you this year!
Remember, if you need extra advice or encouragement this year, I will always be available to help or just talk ;)
