Welcome back to school for the 2014-2015 academic year. I am so excited to have you be a part of the historical adventure we will be taking this year, get ready for an amazing ride.
History is one big story of mankind - I look forward to unveiling to my students the United States' role in that story.
History teaches us valuable lessons - both good and bad. It's important for us to understand our own culture and that of others.
Why I Love History (and you should as well)
“If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree. ” - Michael Crichton
History is a journey - and every single one of you is a part of it. First of all, it's FASCINATING. Learning about the trials and triumphs of those who came before us is priceless.
Most importantly, my goal is to help you on your path to becoming productive citizens - understanding and appreciating history is a large part of that.
