    Teacher Message: Welcome eighth grade parents and students, I look forward to working with all of you this year! As you know, the school year poses many new challenges. However, I believe we can overcome almost any challenge with patience, understanding, and perseverance.
    This year you will learn the basics of U.S. History with a focus on the document that gives our government its power, the U.S. Constitution. There has never been a more important time to learn your rights and responsibilities as citizens, and to take an active role in society. We will be comparing/contrasting events from the past to the present day. One of my goals for you this year is to make a connection between the past and present to help guide our actions in the future.
    Take care, 
    Mr. H
    Biography: I began teaching middle school social studies in 1996 in a small school in Illinois not far from Chicago. However, being from the St. Louis area, I decided to move closer to family. I served as a medical technician in the Air Force Reserves for almost nine years while I was teaching, and I completed the majority of my military duty at Scott AFB. I have a Bachelor of Science in History from S.I.U.E, and a Masters in Administration from Lindenwood University. Thank you for reading this brief bio, and I hope you have a great school year.  Go Bobcats!
