Ms. Denise Wilson
Welcome to United States History! I am very excited to have you in my class this year!
I attended Baylor University where I received my Bachelors. Not knowing exactly what I "wanted to be when I grew up," I worked in the business world for 5 years before I could not longer ignore the fact that I wanted to be a teacher. I have been working at Pearland High School since 2009.
APUSH Key to Success: Do not be discouraged if your grades seem low during the first nine weeks. This is a college-level class and not only are you learning new ways of thinking and notetaking, you are also learning new content, much of it on your own, which is a new process for most students. If you knew the material already, you wouldn't need this course. What you will learn in this class - the writing skills, thinking skills and study skills will benefit you in any classes in the future and are essential for college! If you work in this class, I promise you it will be worth the effort!
If at anytime you need help, feel overwhelmed or just have questions, please come see me. If I know you are coming, I will make sure that I am in my room if at all possible. I want you to succeed and will do all that I can to help you!
Tuesday mornings from 6:30-7:05.
