10th Grade Humanities Teacher

I am in my first year as a teacher of record at HTHMA. Currently teaching 10th grade, my students are working on studying the attacks of 9/11 and 20years before and after that date. They are doing this through individualized research projects focused on the perspectives of different groups of people that were affected both by the various conflicts in the middle east and those that were at ground zero during the attacks.
