Welcome to my 8th Grade American History class website!
HISTORY HAPPENS HERE!
ABOUT OUR CLASS-
American History is the story of our nation, the story of us, the story of YOU! Together, we will explore the birth of our nation from Colonization until 1877. This website will connect you to the resources and materials you will need to be SUPER SUCCESSFUL in my class. This year, you will be taking the STAAR Test in History in order to assess your mastery of the Social Studies Standards.
ABOUT YOUR TEACHER-
This year marks my 30th year in public education and my third year at Bullard Middle School. I previously taught Social Studies in Tyler ISD where I am proud to have been honored as the Tyler ISD Teacher of the Year in 2012. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Stephen F. Austin University with a triple major in Physical Education, Dance and History. I am married to Terry Nick and we have two sons, two daughter in laws, three grandsons and one granddaughter! My family sponsors an adopted daughter in Uganda, Africa named Milly Nakasaga. I am currently serving as the History Department Chair for BMS. I am passionate about my faith in God, my children, my students and the TEXAS LONGHORNS! My hobbies include reading, traveling, snow skiing, dance, volunteering and crafting. I have traveled to Japan, Australia, Uganda, Europe, Mexico, Hawaii, New Zealand and most of the Caribbean Islands. My happy places are Disneyworld, New York City and anywhere with a beach!
I am looking forward to sharing my passion for American History with you!
