B. Malks

Teacher, Social Studies

I teach 6th grade Social Studies and have taught in Arlington Public Schools for many years. In fact, I’m a longtime resident of Arlington myself. I and my two adult children all attended Arlington Public Schools. A fun fact is that my mother was the librarian at Stratford Junior High School, the campus which is now Dorothy Hamm. I have a B.A. from Virginia Tech and a M.Ed. from George Mason University. Prior to teaching, I worked at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City as an immigration consultant for a legalization program for migrant farmworkers. I also worked on two federal commissions on immigration reform. Prior to teaching at DHMS, I was a middle school teacher at Jefferson Middle School and an elementary Spanish teacher at Jamestown and McKinley Elementary Schools.
