Welcome to US History!
I am excited to begin my Third year at Lomax Junior High. In the 8th grade we examine the history of the United States from European colonization through Reconstruction after the Civil War. The students will also become familiar with the political, social, cultural, religious, and economic events that influenced the early development of our nation. Emphasis will also be placed on the geography, government, and citizenship of the United States. We will also focus on how certain events and situations in the nation's history are directly related to the present day.
I have a B.A. in Teaching and Learning with Social studies specialization from the University of Houston and an overall love of history and teaching. This will be my 3rd year to teach US History and I am excited to be at Lomax Junior High for my 3rd year. I have 3 boys 18,19,21 who inspire me to be a better parent, Father and teacher, daily. I understand the importance and value of a great education and work to make that a priority in my classroom.
