It is my pleasure to be teaching 8th grade history to the students of Emerson Jr. High School.  While on our quest to better understand the people and events that shaped the USA, we will examine the efforts of the founders to "Create a More Perfect Union".  Our focus will be on the decisions of these leaders and how they worked to "Establish Justice".  Students will evaluate the impact of the resulting laws on the people of the USA at the time and in some cases into the 21st century.  This investigation will help us in our ongoing search for "truth and justice" in this Nation and in our World today.  I am excited to guide students on this journey.

Looking at the History of the USA

Stay "current"

Please pay attention to the events happening in your World and the USA today that you think may make the history books in the near future.
