    I would like to welcome you to my World History (WH) web page.  I am a retired United States Army Intelligence Officer and have been teaching high school history and health classes for 25 years in Arizona.  I was very priveliged to join our staff for the 2011-2012 school year.  In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I have helped out with our football, wrestling and track programs.  I feel extremely honored to be at Cesar Chavez High School working with highly dedicated and professional staff and faculty committed to each student's success in the classroom and life.  Most importantly, I enjoy the opportunity to work with so many wonderful students striving to maximize their learning experience for a promising and rewarding lifetime ahead.  Cesar Chavez High School students are highly committed to success and a pleasure to teach and learn with.  This will be another great year!
     
    My teaching philosophy is simple.  I learned this while attending college in England.  I believe all students can and will learn if provided an appropriate and encouraging learning environment.  I believe all students learn differently and it is my responsibility to find the best teaching strategies, methods and tools to promote each student’s learning potential and success.  I believe World History is interesting, and it is my job to make learning it and connecting the past to the present and future "fun."  I am a strong supporter of our AVID program and use AVID teaching strategies, methods and tools in my classroom activities everyday.  I believe Close Reading, Cornell Notes, fundamentally sound and effective writing skills and techniques including the basic Five Paragraph Essay, and good bell work including summary ideas and review of AZ state standards, are all keys to learning World History successfully.  I also believe quality video brings history alive.  I believe in an "I do, we do, you do" approach to learning, similar to great coaching practices, assists all students in learning.  I will work hard to prepare all students for the increased academic rigor they will encounter in the 11th and 12th grades.  I believe that the staff, faculty, parents/guardians and students all work together for maximum student achievement and success.
     
    Teacher and parent/guardian communication is critical to student success.  Please contact me immediately if you have any concerns, questions or comments.  I value your communication, check my email daily at school, and will always return communication within 24 hours of reception.  Many questions can also be answered by reading my student Plan for Success (PFS) which is available in the documents folder of this web site and in your student's World History notebook.  In addition, you can find templates and guides in the documents section for Close Reading, Cornell Notes, Thinking Maps, Bell Work and writing including the Five Paragraph Essay.  I am always available for tutoring before and after school.  Students are also welcome during the daily Advisory class.  We all learn together and no one has all the answers.  We are a TEAM; Together Everyone Achieves More!
