Mr. D. Parra

Mission Statement:

The goal of teaching history/social science is to prepare our students to be informed and responsible members of a diverse democratic society.  If students are to understand and participate successfully in local, national, and international events it is crucial that they possess a solid background in history and the social sciences. We must provide our students with opportunities to think critically, to develop an informed opinion, to research a topic effectively, to express their ideas both orally and in writing, and to listen to others who believe differently than themselves.
