Dr. Jaclyn N. Schultz (Jackie) joined the History faculty at Bellevue College in 2020 after completing her Ph.D. at the University of California, Santa Cruz in the same year. Her specializations include U.S. cultural history, the history of race and racism, economic history, and the history of childhood. Her dissertation, “Learning the Values of a Dollar: Childhood and Cultures of Economy in the United States, 1820-1900,” was completed through research support from many institutions and programs, including the American Antiquarian Society, the Library Company of Philadelphia, Harvard University’s Schlesinger Library, and the University of California’s Consortium for Black Studies. Jackie is passionate about teaching history in an engaging and fun way that helps students connect the past to the present. Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Jackie is an avid Brewers fan. She spends her free time watching sports, hiking, listening to podcasts, and zooming with friends.
