LET'S TRAVEL THE GLOBE IN JUNIOR HIGH SOCIAL STUDIES!!
Hello and welcome to Middle School Social Studies!  My name is Mr. Baumgartner and the 2017-2018 
school year will be my fifth year here at St. Joseph.  To give you some background about me, I was born 
and raised in South Bend, IN.  I am the youngest sibling in my family.  
I have a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies from Holy Cross College, a Bachelor's degree in History 
from Indiana University South Bend, and received my teaching license from Bethel College. Before going 
back to school at IUSB with the goal of becoming a teacher, I spent three years as as an admissions 
counselor and basketball coach at Holy Cross College.

In my free time I enjoy golfing, any kind of lake activity, and enjoying the company of friends and 
family.  I have been a basketball coach at St. Joseph High School for the past five years.  I have been a 
huge Notre Dame football fan since I was born and along the way became a Green Bay Packers fan as 
well.  Go Eagles, Go Indians, Go Irish, and Go Pack Go!
