Hi my name is Mr. G. David Williams. I am a 7th grade social studies teacher at Western Rockingham Middle School. I began teaching at WRMS in 2005. Teaching is my second career and is what I have always wanted to do. I worked the previous twelve years in construction, during which I put my wife & myself through college. I graduated from Ferrum College in the spring of 2005 at the top of my class, and my wife finished a year earlier in '04 and earned her Masters of education in 2011. We both work as teachers in Rockingham County, and it is our goal to give all children the tools they need to help them build a better & brighter future.
It's a new year and a lot has changed from earlier years. The curriculum has changed and is all new (for those who have had children that been through my class before). I no longer do journals and instead I have a blog that students must keep up with at kidblog.org (class links are below) I also post homework weekly, But students always have a notes, Map, and/or Vocabulary to study at all time. So if they say they have no homework then they still need to study something!
I have moved all information and homework postings to Edmodo.com for the remainder of the year. This site will be discontinued after this semester. I wish I could keep it, but it is not practical to have two sites with the same information. Ask your child to show you how to use Edmodo.com there is an "app" for it on iTunes and Google store.

Just click on your class
Homework for the remainder of the year will be posted weekly on Edmodo.com (A link is posted above, and students know how to log in)
