Welcome!

 Hello! My name is Polaris Black and I will be teaching Famous Witches and Wizards in History this term. 
Assisting me is Hannah R Thomas, a remarkable Ravenclaw Reserve Prefect. This course 
was created by the amazing Professor Kyrie Adderholt, who has entrusted it to me.
Welcome to the class!

Remember reading one of the Harry Potter books and noticing a witch or wizard
 that you haven't heard of before? Well, this class is here to tell you more about 
those people. Throughout the term, we will take a look at the most famous people 
in magical history as well as some not so famous people. We will cover everyone 
from law makers to healers to Quidditch players to just plain crazy people. 

This class has been taught in previous years by three other teachers. The lessons have been 
edited throughout that time so they might be different somewhat from what you remember. 

If you have any questions or concerns about the class, please feel free 
to contact me at any time. You can email me at polarisblack@gmail.com. 

I look forward to reading your assignments and extra credits! Have a wonderful term!
