Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lycia Kougemitros
I grew up in Montreal, graduated from McGill University, and taught history in Canadian public schools in Toronto prior to moving back to New York. I have been working at Soundview for the last three years. I believe in developing critical thinking skills, having students find an appreciation for history, encouraging students to become independent learners as well as confident presenters. I love incorporating games, hands-on activities, and digital technology into the classroom. I am also currently the staff advisor for the Politics Club that meets Friday afternoons.
This year I am teaching :
8th grade Middle School American History
9th grade World Civilization I
12th grade Modern US History
12th grade Introduction to Psychology
