Welcome to GTHS and the 2023-2024 school year!

"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Welcome to GTHS and the 2023-2024 school year!

​I share your excitement as we begin a new school year and our journey through U.S. history and psychology. 

Personal technology devices, grading, classroom management procedures, and tutoring are listed in the syllabus, which is a page within the subject tabs at the top of the screen. These pages will be updated the first week of school.

Please note - All electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones, smart watches, and earbuds/headphones, must be placed in a pocket, bag, or purse for the duration of the class. Students will receive additional information on this policy as they are briefed on the code of conduct during the first two days of school. 

Quiz and test dates are located on the assessment calendar page, which will be updated as we begin/end each unit. I usually update grades in Parent Portal/Infinite Campus within 24 hours of the assessment date. 

Powerpoint slides discussed in class will be posted on the main subject pages. Slides will be posted within two school days from when they are discussed in class and remain on the webpage for at least two school days.

I communicate with parents and students (outside of class time) via e-mail, raymond.epps@ccboe.net, and parents via phone calls. Parents, please ensure your phone accepts calls from blocked numbers as I will call parents from my cell phone, whose number will be blocked. I do not use Remind, Google Classroom, or a newsletter to communicate with students or parents.

My class schedule:

Warriors Lead the Way!
