Welcome to Social Studies, where you can explore the world.  
A little bit about me.  I graduated from Luverne High School and Minnesota State - Mankato.  I have been married to my wife Kathy for 30 years and we have three children.  Our oldest son Nathan is a Captain in the US Marines.  After a tour in Afghanistan he is currently the commander of the Quick Strike Force covering Europe and North Africa based in Rota, Spain.  Our younger son Eric spent 4 years as a Marine Infantryman rising to the rank of Corporal and doing two tours overseas.  He is currently a Chrysler Certified Mechanic for Dodge of Burnsville. Our daughter Chelsea just returned from six months studying abroad in France is a junior at MSU double majoring in French and International Business.
This is my 16th year at JWP.  I teach US History I, World History, US Government and Economics.
I am also founder and advisor of the JWP History Club.
