How well does YOUR government do?

I apologize for not posting sooner. I got all caught up in what we're doing in class! Right now, students are finding evidence to prove how well governments of different countries are doing at establishing order, providing security, and accomplishing common goals. This has been a challenging assignment and many students are struggling. However, I've also seen quite a few light bulbs clicking on as students gain understanding. This is definately comparative politics at its best!!

I am really excited to see the beginning of this school year. We are going to have a wonderful year of learning and fun.

This blog is just one way that students and parents can keep up with what is going on in class. Here, you can watch videos, comment on posts, check the class calendar, and generally keep tabs on what is going on. I hope that this blog will help forge connections between me and my students and between me and all interested parents. Communication is of vital importance to ensure the best educational opportunities for children. Please use this blog to stay in touch.

That being can always contact me at my school email ( or call the school (606-796-2823) during my planning (roughly 10:40-11:25). I look forward to hearing from you all!!
