I hope you are as excited as I am about the 2016-2017 school year! My motto this year is "NO FEAR". In life sometimes we are stifled, not by our inabilities or aptitudes, but simply because we are afraid! We miss opportunities, we lose out because we are afraid to take risks, we are afraid of what others may think of us or we are afraid of failure. This year we are letting go of our fears we are taking risks, we are being successful. In your World History class we will begin our journey around 500 BCE in East Africa and parts of the Middle East journeying to other civilizations until we end here in the 20th century studying globalization and the impact it has had on the world we know now. We will meet fascinating people, some you will love and some not so much, explore parts of the world you never knew existed, investigate events and predict what the world would be like had some things not happened! I look forward to this journey with you and hope you will enjoy it as much as I have! If you're ready, make sure you have your passport, imagination, and your detective skills as we go "Back?...to the Future".
