Welcome to ACC History!

My name is Robert Taylor and this will be my first year at St. John Vianney High School. After two years of teaching at a public high school in Columbia, MO I am excited to back to St. Louis and cannot wait for this school year and all of the learning opportunities it will bring. This website will help students to navigate ACC US History and ACC Modern European History for the 2018-2019 school year. All of our class assignments and calendar will be posted to Google Classroom. If you need any assistance, please contact me through email at rtaylor@vianney.com

About me:
