I would like to welcome everyone to the new school year, I am very excited to get started.  For all of my classes all students need to bring a 3-ring binder and a pen or pencil every day.  Unless otherwise stated, students should leave their textbooks at home.

In Honors US I we will begin by investigating the exploration of the New World, the establishment of colonies, and the impact they had on the Native American population.

In US History II/Economics we will start off in our Imperialism unit, exploring the motivations for expansion and aggression by the US and other Western nations in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
