    I am a 2008 graduate of The Citadel. I am the Head Football Coach, I am in ninth year at Hanahan, and I teach World History. Most of the work completed in my class is completed on a chromebook. We provide on for the students in my classes. I use the Google Classroom platform. If you would like to get a monthly/weekly report of your student's Google Classroom, please email me and I can sign you up for your reports. Although internet access is recommended at home, it is not requried for my classes. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you this year.
