Mr. Sean O'Connor
My name is Mr. Sean O'Connor and I am the Team Blue social studies teacher. I am thrilled to be working with the great children and families of Huth and am very much looking forward to sharing my passion for the social sciences while working to instill life and character skills in students. Hopefully, through the studying of social studies, students will leave my class with a more expanded world view, an understanding of how to positively interact with and respect the opinions of others, and become diverse, well-rounded learners with strong work ethic skills.
This month, 7th graders will be focusing on the French and Indian War, eventually leading into America's Revolutionary time period. 8th graders will be concentrating on the Civil War leading into Reconstruction, especially detailing how the changes that took place set the tone for new attitudes and opportunities in America. As usual, we will be incorporating current events issues using Junior Scholastic to broaden the horizons of students with real-life ongoings.
As February and March approach, students will begin preparing for the History Fair. More info will be forthcoming regarding this important event and will be communicated via student handouts and the Remind app. To join Remind, download and use the following codes: 7th Grade: @ochuth7 8th Grade: @ochuth8
Thank you for your continued support!
