Hello! I'm Mrs. Palmiter and this year (2018-2019) I teach AP European History & AP World History. I am also advisor for our student Model United Nations club. If this is your first visit to my teacher page, here's a little background on who I am.
My present career, calling, and passion is teaching, but I am also a licensend though not currently practicing attorney. There is a strong connection between what I did as an attorney and what we do as historians. Both professions require us to interpret and use information from a variety of sources with varying points of view and degrees of reliability, completeness, and accuracy. In a legal context, they may be called contracts, affidavits, and witness testimony. In a history context, they are our primary and secondary sources, images, maps, etc. Both lawyers and historians interpret the evidence and present their best evidence-based arguments to support their interpretations of the past. That evidence-based analysis and understanding of the past is the approach we'll use in AP Euro and AP World this year.
On a personal note, I live in Portland with my husband Mike, two of my four children, a large dog named Montgomery, and several barn cats, including the matriarch of the cat clan, the one and only one-eyed cat named "Mordu"!
I have been happily married to a great guy named Mike for the past 31 years. Together we raised 4 incredible children. My oldest, Brian, is completing a doctorate in politcal theory at Harvard. We had an amazing time in Banff, Canada this past summer, celebrating his wedding to a brilliant young woman named Whitney! While Brian teaches and completes his PhD program, Whitney has begun her career as an architect with a firm in Boston. Next comes Cait. She is an incredibley talented graphic designer and illustrator, married to a fantastic guy named Will who is a computer engineer. They recently made a very brave and exciting life change, taking time off from their careers, selling most of their worldly possessions, and heading out on a 1-year adventure to travel, do volunteer work, and devote more time to pursue their other writing and creative passions. I am incredibly excited for them! My third child, Colleen, lives at home and is a recent MSU graduate, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Plant Biology & Environmental Science. She is also a "Bee Charmer" -- pursuing her hobby of caring for a busy hive of bees! Finally, my youngest, Rose, graduated from MSU last year with a degree in Communications and a Spanish minor. Following graduation, she set off on a 6 month adventure enjoying life as a junior park ranger in the Colorado mountains. She's home again now and, although I truly love having both of my girls home with me, both she and Colleen are searching for that next job-adventure!
