History Department

We recognize that our History classes are not the most important part of our students’ lives; however, our students must know that their lives are among the most important things in our lives, and they are the reason we have dedicated a significant portion of our lives to teaching. In short, we enjoy the company, success, and lives of our students.


We tell the stories of the past so that we can better understand ourselves and the connection between the past and the present; we teach so that our students can be inspired by the heroes of the past; so that our students can learn from past successes and failures; and, so that our students can practice the art of empathy.
