 Welcome To My Website!

 "You must be the change you wish to see in the world"  -  Mohandas Gandhi



Welcome to Pre-AP World Geography!  I am pleased that you are accepting the challenge of Pre-Advanced Placement work.  I want you to have a very successful year, to expand your knowledge and appreciation of our world, and to increase your preparedness for Advanced Placement work in upper level grades.

In this class, you will be expected to show a high level of commitment to learning, to do a significant amount of reading and preparation outside of the classroom, and take personal responsibility for assignments and due dates.  As one requirement of this course, students are required to keep an up-to-date geography notebook that demonstrates effective organization.

I ask that you be willing to work with me to attain the goals set for this course and the goals that you will set for yourself.  As a member of the Keller High School student body, you have unlimited opportunities for learning and enrichment.


PRE-AP WORLD GEOGRAPHY INFORMATION:  THIS WILL BE THE WEBSITE FOR ALL MY PRE-AP WORLD GEOGRAPHY INFORMATION (HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS, PPTs, UPCOMING TESTS & PROJECTS, and ANNOUNCEMENTS  WILL BE INCLUDED).  This site is especially important if students are absent from class.  If the K-Connect Website closes, I will send information to students and parents about where I will have Pre-AP World Geography materials and information available for my students.

There is an electronic copy of the World Geography Textbook online for students who might need it, but it is important that you also have a copy of the textbook for your personal use.  There will be an opportunity for students to sign out copies of the textbook at the beginning of the school year.  There is a quick link to access the online book on the right side of this page under "Links."  You can also gain access to a version of your textbook online by searching for and then using the following information:
