    My name is Alyse Cruickshank and I am very excited to start my fifth year of teaching at Eagle Ridge Middle School! I grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, and attended Virginia Tech for my undergraduate and graduate degrees. In 2011, I graduated with a BA in History, and in 2013, I finished my MA in Social Studies Education.  I have enjoyed working with my 6th grade students to learn about the many people, places and events that shaped the story of the United States over the past three years.  I can’t wait to start another year at Eagle Ridge!

    Feel free to contact me with any questions about class!
