Gamage, Krystal

 Wando High School
Welcome to World Geography!

I am originally from Maine where I attended the University of Maine, Orono.  I earned my B.A. in Secondary Education with a focus in Social Studies:  Psychology and World History.  I am currently pursing a Masters from LSU - Curriculum and Instruction / Administration. 

I began teaching 13 years ago!  I taught a variety of courses during my 9 years of teaching in Maine.  I have taught Geography, Current Events, Civics & Government, Economics, Psychology, Sociology, United States History and SAT Prep.  At my school in Maine, I was a proud advisor to the Student Council and the Senior Class.  

This is my second year at Wando and I am very excited to be teaching Honors World Geography.  I am also the new Wando Student Council advisor.  It is an honor to be working with such an amazing group of young men and women.  

I look forward to meeting all of you :)
