Mr. Smith - 7th Grade US History
Welcome to our 7th Grade Social Studies page!
This course will take us from post-Civil War to present day.
This is my fifth year at Saunders Middle, where I also serve as department chair and head baseball coach. I enjoy working with the great faculty and staff we have at Saunders, and more importantly I, look forward to another year of helping our students succeed in and out of the classroom.
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
