The 3rd Quarter ended on March 13. Students have the opportunity to improve their grade if they wish by following the instructions provided and reading the email that was sent to students on their school Gmail account on Monday, March 30. If you are happy with your 3rd Quarter grade, then you need to take no additional action at this time. Information about 4th Quarter assignments will be coming to you soon.
There will be an extra credit assignment for those who would like to improve their 3rd Quarter grades found on my Google Classroom.
I hope everything is going well with all of you, stay safe, we got this!
Welcome to my History Class.
This is my 23rd year teaching in Poquoson City Public Schools. I have taught all three grades and levels of Social Studies at Poquoson Middle School. I was formerly the Military Interpretive specialist for the Yorktown Victory Center (now American Revolution Museum at Yorktown) which is part of the Jamestown Yorktown Foundation. I graduated from Christopher Newport College with a Bachelor's Degree in History and a minor in Education in 1992. I also earned a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2005. I am certified to teach History and Social Sciences 6-12.
At Poquoson Middle School, I currently teach US History I to 1865 and US History II 1865-Present. In 2014, I was honored to receive from the teachers of Poquoson Middle School, the Teacher of the Year award.
My wife and I have two sons and I enjoy studying history and current events, playing boardgames and miniature wargames, reading, visiting historic sites and volunteering as a historical interpreter at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.
