Mr. James Vierthaler

Welcome to my Economics/Honors Economics class!


Here's some information about my background -

I was born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and I also lived in Troy, Michigan as a kid.  After high school I joined the US Air Force and served from 1990-1994.  After the Air Force I attended the University of Florida and graduated in May 1998 (although I remain an FSU fan).  I have been married since 1999 and my wife and I have a wonderful daughter. 


I have been teaching since 1998, and I wholeheartedly believe that economics is a course that we all experience in our lives every day.


Students are expected to check the class website to keep up with assignments, especially in the event of an absence.  All class assignments are listed in chronological order for both the economics and honors economics classes.  For additional information about each assignment (page numbers, Powerpoint links, etc.), please click on the 'Directions' tab for that particular assignment.


I hope that you enjoy your semester in my class.
