Welcome to the new team! This is where our perspective will be in the future. We look out at the view, vistas and opportunities! 

Yes, I will keep @team1history on twitter and you can follow me on Instagram mrschistory. I will have a new snapchat account to post to see what is going on in class. I enjoy celebrating exemplary student work there and pictures related to my favorite students. I was so impressed with my students' incredible castles and cathedrals this year. Stop by and see what is there today! WOW!!!

Welcome to the Team History and Social Studies Webpage~ Soon to be Team Summit History!

2014 is coming to a close. With the end of this school year, the ending of Team McAuliffe is coming true... History has been made and it has been great making a difference in the world locally.  We will still be the closest of friends and hold our memories in our hearts. Next year brings us new opportunities and experiences. Please keep in touch. I wish you all the very best in all of your life's endeavors! 

Yes, our paths have  crossed and we have shared a wonderful year together. As you, my students, move on in new directions, I look forward to hear what you do with your own history.  Your class has been over the top incredible. I am impressed by your knowledge, dedicated work and investment in learning. You are scholars and certainly presented super questions, participated in class discussions and did great work!

Here's wishing all a wonderful life!

Dedicated to our children

"History is not boring. More important, it is relevant to the lives of every student, but none more than our most disadvantaged. Rather than teach
ing it as a series of eye-glazing events, it should be presented in a way that affords students the opportunity to delve in; question; and, above all, see in history's unfolding, how we, the people, have traveled from there to here; and how that journey is relevant to all of us." 

1/28 Remembering...  The Challenger Crew

The NASA family lost seven of its own on the morning of Jan. 28, 1986, when a booster engine failed, causing the Shuttle Challenger to break apart just 73 seconds after launch. In this photo from Jan. 9, 1986, the Challenger crew takes a break during countdown training at NASA's Kennedy Space Center.
