Hello, let me introduce myself, I am Tanya Wolfenbarger and I am a Social Studies teacher at Morristown Hamblen High School East. I have been at East for 11 years and I love to teach History and Geography. Many times my students ask "why do we need to know about history"? The study of the past helps us shape our future and helps us understand how the world, the United States, and we as a people have developed over time. Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family. I have been married for 22 years to my husband, who is a elementary school principal. We have a wonderful son who is 16 years old and is a Junior here at East. We spend most of our free time together either working at home, visiting family, attending church, or being with our son at his various activities. We have three pets- two dogs Jake and Sandy and one cat- Anastasia. Welcome to my class!
