• Welcome to Mrs. Manske's Website!


    Mrs. Manske A little about myself... I have been teaching in Santa Ana for over 20 years, and I have been at MacArthur since 2010.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in History and Political Science, a Master's Degree in Education, a single subject teaching credentials in Social Studies and Language Arts, and a multiple subject teaching credential.  I am married and have two children and one dog.  I love to travel, read, watch movies, and spend time with my family and friends. 

    Teaching Philosophy...My goal for ALL of my students is to challenge them to think.  Every student I teach is special and has amazing potential.  I value them as individuals and as contributors to our entire class's learning.  I want students to question, analyze, and evaluate history based on a variety of information.  Get ready to use your BRAIN!.

    I post all my daily activities in Canvas.  Students are expected to log in here each day for their assignments.  You can expect your child to have approximately 30-60 minutes of homework a week.  However, it is entirely possible that a student could finish their work during our class time and office hours if they use their time wisely.  

    I am available for tutoring:

    • Mon, Tue, Thur, Fri 1:00-2:30 through Zoom.  My Zoom link is available through Aeries or Canvas.  Students should email me directly to schedule a tutoring session.  Parents may also email me directly to schedule a conference.

    I can be reached at:
