Mr. Ben Pineda
Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies! We'll be looking at US history, from the American Revolution through Reconstruction. We'll also spend time building on a variety of academic skills, as well as keeping watch on current events.
This is my 27th year at Haslett Middle School... 28.5th year with the district! I feel so fortunate to have been able to land in the best community and school district in the state... Go Vikings!!
My basic teacher goals are to:
1) maintain a classroom environment that exemplifies respect for self, others, community, and environment
2) help students improve their academic skills
3) address current events on a weekly basis
4) teach the early half of US history
