We are all historians… We are all called on to engage in historical thinking- called on to see human motives in the texts we read.” - Sam Wineburg

Dear Students and Parents,

            Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Mountain View Middle School.  I am Mr. Figueroa and I will be your guide to World History and Geography.  I am excited for the school year and look forward to ensuring that you are excited too.  In World History, we will start at prehistory, The Stone Age, and go all the way up to the Middle Ages.  This will be a journey of hundreds of thousands of years, but I am confident we will make it.  History is much more than memorizing peoples, places, and dates.  It is the story of us.  Where we came from and where we are going.
