Welcome to 7th grade and to the study of Civics and Geography!


Hello everyone!  I'm Dena Van den Bosch, and I teach 7th grade Social Studies (Civics and Geography) and Yearbook. 2021-2022 marks my 12th year of teaching, and I have been at Clark-Shaw Magnet School for seven years.  

My husband and I are both U.S. Army veterans, and my oldest son serves in an Army Airborne unit in Italy. I have two teenagers who are in the 11th and 10th grades at Baker High School. I am a huge animal lover and love hanging out with my family and our many pets!

I look forward to getting to know you and your family as we navigate this new school year together. Please reach out to me and let me know how I can help.
