Welcome to Middle School Social Studies
Mr. G: My name is Mr. Galias and I will be teaching 7th grade and 8th grade Social Studies for the 2018/2019 school year. I have had the opportunity to serve as a middle school teacher in San Antonio and in Dallas for the past nine years. Most of that time has been spent teaching Social Studies.
Education: I earned a Bachelor's Degree in History at The University of Texas at Dallas and a Master's Degree in Educational Administration at Texas A&M University in San Antonio. I am a firm believer in the concept of life long learning and see each minute as a teachable moment.
What To Do: The expectation for all classes is to have the "tools" needed to work -- have your supplies with you, especially your pencils, notebook and Leader In Me binder. You will need these every day. Also, be "mentally" prepared to work -- we have a lot of material to cover in a short period of time. Walk into the classroom with a "7 Habits" mindset and continue to grow as a leader.
What We'll Do: I'll make certain that you have the opportunity to discover the information that you will need to have a better understanding of the physical and cultural aspects of social studies for your grade level. Let's work together to make this a great year of learning. Questions? Contact me at my email address or at 214-276-5800
