Welcome to Our Classroom!
My name is Joseph Guerrera and I teach 6-8th grade social studies. This is my second year teaching at St. Bridget and my 5th year teaching overall. I have a B.S. in History Education and M.A. in Public History; both from CCSU.I have taught at both high school and middle school levels for districts all around this state. Prior to teaching I worked with multiple museums to organize and develop educational field trips.
In 6th grade I teach the students World Regions, which covers a cornucopia of cultures both modern and ancient from all around the world. In 7th grade I cover US History which starts with Indigenous American tribes and concludes at the dawn of the Civil War. 8th grade US history picks up at the Civil War and continues through to World War One. I also cover Geography for both 7th and 8th grade. Both of these classes travel from region to region, culture to culture learning about how the people of these areas live while always asking, “How does the geography of this region affect the culture of its people?”
Quotes from the class:
"I like the interactive game it makes vocab fun!"
"These primary source sheets are challenging but they are better than the book, I feel like I get more out of it."
