Welcome! My name is Mr. Lammey, and I'm one of the new 8th Grade US History teachers at the one and only McAuliffe Middle School. I graduated recently from Texas A&M University, where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. I also currently am enrolled in The Johns Hopkins University's Master of Arts program, where I'll be obtaining my MA in Government. I could not be more excited to share what I've learned. In addition to acing the curriculum we learn, my goal is for my students to learn at least one cool, interesting thing about US history each day.
History is more just than memorizing names and dates - We're learning from the successes and falls of humanity thus far. History is an incredibly important subject, especially in 8th grade, as this is the first grade level where our students will be taking a History STAAR test. My role here is to ensure our students' success, on the STAAR test, the course, and in life. I look forward to each day with our students, and if we work together and share a mutual respect for one another, we will have a great, fun year!
If you need to contact me at any point, my door is always open. The best way to reach me is via e-mail. Again, looking forward to a great year!
