Welcome to 7th Grade World History!
My name is Kristie McMichael and I am so excited to be a part of the Baptist Hill Family. Here you will find upcoming due dates, assignments, monthly newsletters, and short videos that compliment the content we are studying. I love teaching and history, and I hope that I can help my students make those connections between the events of the past and what is happening in the world every day. More importantly, I love to tap into the growing awareness students have about the bigger world around them.
This year some amazing topics we will be studying are as follows: Exploration, Founding Governments, Revolutions, The Great Depression, World Wars, and the War on Terrorism.
I grew up in the city of Philadelphia (go Eagles) and attended West Chester University where I earned a Bachelors of Science in Management. I also hold a Masters Degree in Secondary Education. I have lived in Japan for three years, Italy for two, and Germany for five. I have visited over 30 countries and still counting! The military brought me here but the southern charm and history will keep me here.
I have two daughters and a son. I also like to say I have 80 adopted children ( my AWESOME students).
My hobbies include gardening, traveling, listening to old school hip hop, snowboarding, and dining at cultural restaurants. And of course spending time with my family.
Parents, I thank you for the support. We are a team and I could not do this without you!
