    Hi! This is my 20th year teaching 9th grade Government, I love it! I've been here at Battle since we've opened. In addition to regular Government courses, I teach the AP U.S. Government & Politics and English 9 Honors block class, ACT Prep, and co-sponsor Battle's Student Council. 
    My Schedule for Fall 2020 Semester: 
    1st: Government (with Mr. Ricky Presberry)
    2nd: Conference Period 
    3rd: Government
    4th: AP U.S. Government & Politics and English 9 Honors (with Ms. Alex Wendell)
    If your schedule allows, my daily conference period is a great time to get additional support from me. Reach out via email or Schoology message to ask questions or schedule a Zoom.
    We will use Schoology to manage our updates, instructions, daily work, and course links. Work will be submitted in Schoology. Microsoft OneNote ClassNotebook will be used to annotate readings, there is a link to our class OneNote notebook in Schoology.
    Class Zoom Link (for any day that our class gathers on Zoom)
    Zoom Office Hours Link (Wednesdays 2-4pm)
    For Virtual Government: Your course grade will always be most up-to-date in Schoology.
    For AP U.S. Government & Politics: Your grades will be accurate in eSchool, and will reflect your learning in both your AP Gov & English 9 Honors course. 1 grade = 2 courses = 2 credits! You will be able to access additional AP supports in Khan Academy & AP Classroom (we set these up the first week of school and links will be available in Schoology).
    Resources we will use this year:
    Quizlet For vocabulary practice- we're going to use a lot of new words!
    iCivics We'll use iCivics to play some learning games & complete some webquests.
