Hi! I’m Erika Sponsler and I have been teaching at WHS since 1998. I teach US History, AP US History (APUSH) and yearbook. I really enjoy helping students prepare for the future by building their skills in reading, research, and writing. I am a graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in Social Relations from James Madison College—a small college within MSU where the focus is on public policy, social science and pre-law. The college is designed to challenge students through group discussions and research and to teach students to think, interpret and analyze social policy and its impacts. I believe the purpose of social studies/history for high school students is to teach them to be active, engaged, educated participants in their community and world.

My minors are in English--I taught Accelerated Eng (honors) and gen English until 2006, and Environmental Science. I also have a masters degree in curriculum design and teaching. I completed my internship in 1997 at Jackson High and then subbed in various districts before being hired at WHS. I am interested in evolving social studies curriculum issues and host a monthly Social Studies Network at the JCISD and serve the county representing social studies teachers at the state level as a liaison with the Michigan Social Studies Supervisors Association.
