Saddleback Valley Unified School District
I have been teaching at RSM for 19 years, and love it! Both my sons went through school here; one is now a computer analyst in Manhattan NY, and the other is a Diablo! Teaching World History is one of my passions... I travel whenever I have the chance, and was a Peace Corps volunteer in the late 1900s :) I lived in Nepal, sandwiched between India and China in the Himalayan foothills (9,000 feet high!) in a village with no roads, electricity or plumbing. Perfect experience for teaching the Middle Ages!
In this class, we cover about 1,000 years of history, from about 500 AD - 1500 AD, and study all continents except Australia and Antarctica. The content includes geography and how it molded life for people around the world, including trade, competition, religion and culture.
