    This is my twenty-first year teaching Social Studies at Western Alamance High School.  I will bring a high level of enthusiasm and preparation to the class as well as academic preparation.  I have a B.A. in History from the Pennsylvania State University, as well as a M.A. in European History from the same great institution.  I also have a M.Div. from "a former career" (wink, wink, nod, nod) and a plethora of education courses from A.C.C. and Elon University from the time when I was preparing for my teacher certification.  This somewhat-narcissistic selfie (above)  attempts to show some of my interests in just one picture.  How many can you spot in the picture or in class?
    For this semester, you can prepare for class with the following supplies: a 1- 1/2 inch three-ring binder, three-hole note paper, several writing utensils (pen or pencil is fine), a packet of colored pencils for map work (8 colors is enough), earbuds for in-class laptop use, a paper (not nylon or plastic) textbook cover will also be needed (I will explain how to adapt a simple brown paper grocery bag), and you will receive a personal email about how to link to your Canvas page.
