O'Briant, James A
I am James A O'Briant. I have been here at Horizon for my 12th year and am proud to be a part of this school.
As an experienced educator, I have had the pleasure of teaching from Kindergarten all the way through the college level.
I have been a part of our ESE Academy since 2009 and am always pleased to see our students grow.
I am teaching 6-8 English/Language Arts and 6-8 Social Studies (World History, Civics, and American History). I am teaching an online Math180 and Plato (Course Recovery) at the building and some students online.
The main goal I have is for my students to do better at reading and talking about what they are learning from their reading with parents/guardians.
If you have any questions in regards to this class communication is welcome via e-mail.
Social studies -- do READING Projects for Social Studies. Do the quizzes after completing the book. If the book doesn't have a quiz, then you can do a summary paragraph you send to me as an email. I will need a Title-number of pages and one-paragraph summary that includes Who, What, When, Where, and How. (Give me at least 3 of those)
