Welcome to the new student page. Here you will find the course syllabus for American Government and Economics. At the beginning of each year I take some time to discuss my teaching philosophy. I give every student an opportunity to have a fresh start. I subscribe to a "3-D" philosophy of determination, dedication, and discipline. A philosophy that has helped me out both personally and professionally. Two other ideas I like to discuss are time management and organizational skills. I can keep you organized for class, but you have to learn to manage your time to complete assignments. My hope is that we meet in the middle. Afterall, that's where learning takes place. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to discuss them openly with me. Thank you for your time and it is nice to meet you.
