Hi, Parents and Students,
Welcome to your eighth grade year. I am Teresa Brady, your social studies teacher. I was born in Marietta Georgia, and moved around quite a bit as a child because my Dad was in the U.S. Air Force.
I graduated from Saint Mary's University in San Antonio with a major in English and a minor in history. I have taught quite a few grades over the years from first grade to seniors in high school. Since Hornedo opened twenty-one years ago, I have been teaching eighth grade social studies.
Throughout the year you, the student, will have a better understanding of U.S. historical events and their causes, effects, and significance. Also, you will learn about important people that relate to various events.
I am very much looking forward to working with you this year. I want you to have a successful year as you transition to high school.
With rare exceptions, I am available all of the days before and after school to help you.
My prep period is during third period every day but Wednesdays when I meet with the other teachers from the social studies department.
Let's all work together for a successful eighth grade year.
Ms. Terry Brady
