My favorite past times are football and reading. I love high school and college football . I also love biographies but my favorite books are murder mysteries. Erle Stanley Gardner and Robert B.

WHAT I TEACH:
This is a junior-level class (required for graduation) whose purpose is to prepare students to take and pass the AP Exam in May. The work load is challenging. Students will meet everyday for one semester and every other day for the other semester. Students are expected to keep up with the work lead in this class. This class begins with the age of exploration and continues through to present day. This class also requires a great deal of reading and writing(outside of class). Students who do well may receive college credit (by passing the AP exam) for this course. There is also an End of Course Examination required by the state of South Carolina that counts as 20% of the final year grade.U.S. GovernmentThis is a Sophomore level course that is a requirement for graduation.
