Curt Duggins-Civics and US History

Hello My Name Is...

<Curt Duggins>

WHS MISSION STATEMENT

WILDCATS PROUD:  STILL WORKING TO IMPROVE LEARNING AND DISCIPLINE WITH CURRICULUM, ASSESSMENTS, AND TEACHING STRATEGIES THAT ARE EVIDENCE BASED.

ABOUT ME
FOR QUITE SOME TIME, I HAVE TAUGHT AT WOSSMAN HIGH SCHOOL.  I ALSO GRADUATED FROM WOSSMAN.  AFTER SERVING A TOUR IN THE US ARMY, HUAH!, I RETURNED TO THIS AREA AND GRADUATED FROM ULM. SHORTLY AFTER THAT, I WAS HIRED TO TEACH SOCIAL STUDIES AT WOSSMAN.  I ALSO COACHED FOOTBALL HERE IN THE MID 90S.
MY PHILOSOPHY OF TEACHING IS THAT ALL STUDENTS CAN LEARN.  DIFFERENT STUDENTS REACT TO DIFFERENT STRATEGIES, BUT ALL CAN LEARN. HOWEVER LEARNING REQUIRES THAT ALL INVOLVED DO THEIR PART,  SO WHILE I LESSON PLAN, MANAGE THE CLASS, AND PRESENT THE MATERIAL, IT IS ALSO THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENT TO STUDY THE MATERIAL FROM CLASS AND READ THEIR TEXT TO BE PREPARED FOR CLASS ADEQUATELY.  PARENTS, THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP IN ENCOURAGING YOUR STUDENT AND CHECKING ON THEIR PROGRESS.
