Welcome to my social studies class!  I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with your student.  I am a 'career changer'; meaning after many years working in the computer network / telecom business (including 5 yrs. living in Paris, France), I elected to pursue a new career as a teacher. I am passionate about teaching history (social studies), and leverage my experience traveling around the world as a means to bring history to life for your student. 
I have been teaching at PCMS since 2007.  Prior to that I taught history at Stuart High School in Fairfax, Virginia. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach your student this year.  I believe students can grow and develop by examining the issues we discuss in class.  My basic philosophy is based on what Pearl S. Buck said "If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday."
My Google Classrooms provide information about policies in my classroom via the Syllabus, all assignments and announcement information, as well as access to textbooks and other online resource information students will need.  As a parent, be sure you are receiving the Google Classroom Summary via your email invite.  Thank you again for the opportunity to teach your student.  I am looking forward to this year.
