Journal History


ebturner's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Other
United States

I have recently (May 2017) taken a new teaching position at a regular school. I will be teaching world history and possibly government & economics as well. In my state world history is taught to freshmen (9th graders). I'm not overly crazy about that, but they can be okay.

For the last seven years I was a high school U.S. history, world history, geography, economics, & government teacher. I taught at a county public alternative school for students who violate zero tolerance polices or have continual behavior issues. I started teaching in 2010 after serving in the military for 21 years.

I received my B.A. in history/education in 2010, focusing on early American history. I am a member of the following organizations: Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Alpha Theta, National Forensic League, the Disabled American Veterans, the Tennessee Alternative Education Association, & the Tennessee Council on Social Studies.

I am also a retired disabled Army veteran (1985 - 2006). I served as an intelligence analyst, country analyst, counter-drug analyst, counterinsurgency analyst, paramilitary analyst, and counter-terrorism analyst, among various other duties. I am also a German & Arabic linguist. I am a Southwest Asia veteran.
Favorite Quotes:

"Hic Svnt Dracones" Hunt-Lenox Globe (1503-07)

I saw you stopped by. How goes everything? I'm bouncing off the walls a bit, improving though.

It's going okay. Just finished up my 1925 map of Europe. Will be posting it tonight. I'll be starting on the 1939 map of Europe tonight or tomorrow. 

I saw a status update from you about taking a vacation from DA in my notifications. But I deleted it too fast to read it all thoroughly. So I stopped by to read it slowly and thoroughly. I hope all is well with you. 

I suppose I'll see ya when you get back. Take it easy.
