A Look Within the Class: History Department
Story by Francisco Castaneda, Multimedia journalist
“This is my 8th year at PHS. I teach World Geography, Current Events, World History. Honestly I enjoy teaching all my classes in their own way. Human Geography is my favorite unit to teach because I enjoy discussing world cultures, history, and government with the students”
“I have taught at PHS for 19 years. I teach American Government, World History, and World History electives. My favorite class to teach is World War II. World War II because of the content.”
“This is my first year at PHS. I teach American History and World Geography. I love all history! The events and circumstances leading up to World War I because it helps students better understand the modern world and the eventual role of America in it.”
“This is my 17th year at PHS. I teach Government, World History, The Holocaust, Justice Studies, ESOL classes. The Holocaust is my favorite class to teach. Individual Rights is my favorite unit to teach because it is important for students to know what their rights and responsibilities are.”
"I have taught at PHS for 13 years and 20 in the district. I teach U.S. History, Psychology, Sociology. My favorite class to teach is U.S. History. My favorite unit to teach is the 1960s. I love the controversy of the climate of the times; i.e. civil rights, JFK assassination, Counter Culture, all of it."
