This past week we wrapped up Unit 1 with learning about the Columbian Exchange and identifying some of the most important exchanges that have had, are having or will have on the world. We then spent a class period working on our Unit 1 Essays. We also began to look at Jamestown and a few of the heroes from Jamestown, including Pocahontas, John Smith and Bartholomew Gosnold.

My name is Captain Danny Horne. I am going into my 12th year of teaching for the 2019-2020 school year. I have a Masters Degree from BYU in Educational Leadership, a Bachelor's from UVU in History/Military Science and I am endorsed to teach Special Education (taught it for 5 years), Gifted & Talented (A.L.L.), Coach, and to be an Administrator in schools. In other words, I am more than qualified to do what I do. I'm close to being done with a second Master's Degree, but have put that on hold as I explore Doctorate programs. I speak Polish, some English, love learning and speaking Spanish with students and I'm learning Italian because ...why not? I am also the Varsity Head Coach for Westlake Lacrosse, which is a great honor! I get to do two of my passions in life outside of being a husband and father: Teaching and Coaching.
