Welcome to my web page! I hope that the information you find on this page will be both informative and helpful to you! This year I will be teaching AP Human Geography and World History. I am looking forward to the 2017-2018 school year and the many new and exciting opportunities ahead of us.

ABOUT AP HUG
AP Human Geography is a year-long course that focuses on the distribution, processes, and effects of human population on the planet. The course is designed to meet or exceed the experience of an introductory one-semester college human geography course. The course provides a systematic study of human geography, including the following topics outlined in the most recent course description published by the College Board: Geography: Its Nature and Perspective, Population, Cultural Patterns and Processes, Political Organization of Space, Agricultural and Rural Land Use, Industrialization and Economic Development, Cities and Urban Land Use.
ABOUT World History
World History is more than just a series of dramatic events. It is the story of the human community how people lived on a daily basis, how they shared ideas, how they ruled and were ruled, and how they fought. World history includes big subjects like geography, economics, politics, and social change, but it is also the story of dreams fulfilled or unfulfilled, personal creativity, and philosophical and religious inspiration. World history seeks a global perspective on the past, one that acknowledges and integrates the historical experiences of all of the world's people. Only by examining humanity's shared past is it possible to view today's world in meaningful historical context.
