Mr. Jeremy Mankins
Greetings Huth Family! My name is Jeremy Mankins and I am the Team Red social studies teacher. I am extremely excited to be working with the students of Matteson School District 162, and very much anticipating developing a collective passion for social studies. In addition to learning about different historical periods, my hope is that students will develop as young citizens; growing not only as intellectuals, but in character and maturity. When students depart from this class, their in-depth analyzation of social studies should leave them with a better understanding of the diverse world around them and how to respectfully interact with it, and its inhabitants.
I am a 2020 graduate of Purdue University where I received my BA in Social Studies Education. During my time at Purdue, I was a member of the All-American Marching Band where I played the snare drum. Outside of being a percussionist I was also the president of an organization called S.E.E.D. (Students in Education Enhancing Diversity). Both of these organizations played a vital role in my development and my hope is that I will be able to teach my students similar life skills, drawing a connection between classroom learning and my students' daily lives.
I am beyond excited to begin this school year with the O.W Huth family and I am honored to be working with your students. Let us work together to develop our students in every capacity and to set them up for unlimited possibilities.
