Hi, and welcome to my website. My name is Mrs. Shihabi and I teach 7th grade social studies. I am a native southern Californian. I grew up in the San Fernando Valley - yes, I am a valley girl. I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Cal State University Northridge. I have been teaching for 20 years (doesn't seem possible) and I have been a Colina Cougar for the past nine years. My husband and I have lived in Thousand Oaks since 1994, and we are raising three children - ages 13, 11, and 7.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading and running. I am also a huge Dodger fan, and although they had a pathetic season, I will continue to root for them. Hey, there's always next year.
In 7th grade, we cover history from the fall of the Roman Empire to the Enlightenment. It's interesting, rich, and full of drama. I look forward to an exciting and successful year with you.
