Hello, I am Michael Meizies, and this will be my eighth year teaching at Jared Eliot Middle School and my eighteenth year overall in the Clinton School District. I earned my B.A. from the University of Connecticut and my M.S. from Southern Connecticut State University.
Welcome to United States History! We will have an exciting and fun-filled year learning about the United States' heritage. The course will commence with the founding of the United States' government after the adoption of the Constitution and conclude with Reconstruction. You will have many opportunities to demonstrate your content skills and knowledge; make the most of them.
