Black Death

The History Channel provides an interesting look at the Black Death.

Welcome Back!

I'm excited for the new school year!  I'm beginning my 12th year of teaching and my classes look awesome.  I have a terrific group of students with whom I'm sharing my classroom and I have the opportunity to teach a variety of 'new' subjects this year:  World Civilization, AP World History, US History, and Political Science.  I hope you find this blog to be helpful and I look forward to our time together.
