Mr. Adam: Global Studies
Global Studies looks at all of the regions of the world, and their human and physical geography. Physical geography deals with natural features of the earth such a climate, land forms, and bodies of water. Human geography deals with anything humans do, including history, government, economics, and culture.
About me: I have always been interested in studying the world and in global events. I usually have a lot of fun while I teach, and I cannot imagine doing any other job! The only things I love more than social studies are my family and strong dark coffee. I have a wife and two children; a five year old girl, and a two year old boy.
