Hello everyone! I am Hannah Roberts, a Marymount University graduate student. I am studying to become a secondary Social Studies teacher. I also substitute teach for Fairfax County Public Schools, work at Starbucks in Vienna, VA, and plan my upcoming wedding (coming up soon on October 4th 2014!). I am a NOVA native, and was homeschooled with my wonderful family from grades second through 12th. It was wonderful, and absolutely the best education I could have ask for. After finishing high school, I went to the University of Dallas and studied Political Philosophy and Law. During my time at UD, I was able to spend a semester in Rome, Italy and a month in Avila, Spain. I’ve been very blessed to have a wonderful education that has taught me to love learning, and I want to share this love with others. My biggest educational passion is for history and politics, because I think that learning about the story of mankind and the way humanity interacts teaches us more about ourselves as persons. I see studying the humanities as a life-long pursuit that all people should have in common.
In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful parents and siblings. I have a 21 year brother, a 19 years old brother, a 15 year old brother, and a 12 year old sister. I also spend a lot of time with my lovely fiance, watch a lot of Game of Thrones, and plan a lot of weddings (my best friend and I are getting married within 7 weeks of each other and are one another’s maids of honor). I spend much of my times in the car, so I have become an avid listener of NPR news, and especially like Marketplace (on at 6pm).
