I have been teaching for 19 years and currently in my 16th year at Reading High School. I received my Bachelor of Education from Bowling Green State University and my Master of Education from Indiana Wesleyan University. I teach World History, Accelerated World History, AP US Government & Politics, Sociology, and World and Cultural Geography.
iPad and Google information:
As you are all aware all high school students will have/have iPads beginning with the 2013-2014 school year. I am planning on utilizing the iPads to cut down on the amount of paper used in my classroom. I have created a separate page on online classroom for all tech information.
I was very excite to be invited to test the new Google Classroom last year. Google Classroom is program that integrates Google Drive and a collaborative interface. All my students will be invited to participate in Google Classroom. All documents, assignments, annoucements, etc. will be transfered to Google Drive instead of using Online Classroom. Most things will be on Google Classroom for now on as it is only open to those with readingschools accounts. For students without internet access paper copies of all assignments/materials can be made available- just ask.
Blizzard Bag Assignments will still be available on this site. Please click on the class pages to the left.
AP Government has a Weebly site. http://leonesocialstudies.weebly.com/ap-government.html
World History Weebly site: http://leonesocialstudies.weebly.com/world-history.html
I will be using Remind (formerly Remind101) as a communication for Annoucements, Homework, etc. You can email or call me via my contact information above. Standard text messaging rates apply. If you have limited texting you can signup with an email addess and receive emails instead. I will be passing out the class specific information the first week of school.
