I teach in the greatest school in mid-Michigan. My students know me as Mr. K, I have
been teaching at Everett High School, in Lansing for fourteen years. My students
come from all walks of life and nations but many come from circumstances that are
less than ideal. I teach them not only the subjects of World History, Economics, and
A.P. U.S. , but about life as well and that this country has a lot to offer people. My
students are mostly 9th graders, but my A.P. class is made up of mostly 10th graders
who often out perform the 11th & 12th graders on the national AP US History exam.
As a teacher, I have high expectations for my students. I want them to learn not only
the lessons that history has shown us, but also to learn from their own personal
history so they can make great choices to improve their lives. I am passionate about
teaching, it was a second career for me, I left Photography years ago to answer the
calling of becoming a teacher in an urban school district. I have never regretted it.
Any consideration shown to my students will be appreciated. I thank you for your
