    Hello everyone . . . I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe.  I'm sure you are wondering about what we will be doing as we are dealing with the COVID-19 situation.  Of course this year we'll be starting virtually.  We'll be doing Blended learning which means we'll meet online through Microsoft TEAMS for 45 minutes to discuss and learn.  Then you will have work to do on your own.  Don't worry, you can always reach out to me during the school day to get help if you get stuck.
     
    Right now, stay safe and continue to learn. 
     
     
    Biography: Welcome.  My name is Major Francis and I teach American History and American Government.  I have a Doctorate in Education Administration, a Masters in History and have been teaching at Cleveland since 2004. My expetise is in World History as I have travelled to over 20 countries and lived in three continents. In addition I have served in the National Guard for 20 years, including a tour in Afghanistan (2006-2007), served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Thailand, and have taught English in Slovakia.
     
    I enjoy travelling and seeing the places I used to teach about. In addition, I read histories extensively to further my understanding of the past.
