My primary goals for this year include the following (in no necessary order):
  • To increase the students' historical and geographic knowledge of other areas of the globe
  • To develop the students' ability to "think outside" their own worldview by imagining life through the eyes of people who lived in times and places much different than the contemporary United States
  • To increase the students' effectiveness in writing with a focus on articulation and coherence
  • To help the students to develop positive character traits, behavioral growth, and good work habits
  • To make students aware of important contemporary global issues
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have (email will get you the quickest response, but phone is fine).
 
Be well.
