Mrs. Catherine Hall

Welcome to 7th grade Civics! I'm Mrs. Hall and I'm excited to be your teacher this year. I am a graduate of the University of Florida. This year will be my 23nd year teaching at Howard Middle School. This year marks that I have officially spent more than 50% of my entire life at Howard Middle School! In my free time, I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, and traveling. I am also an amateur genealogist with roots here in Marion County that go back six generations.

 

Why do we study Civics? According to James Madison, the father of the Consitutution: "A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to Farce or Tragedy or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own Governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."
