Mrs. Catherine Hall
Welcome to 7th grade and get ready to be INCREDIBLE and SMASH the Civics EOC! 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 24th year teaching at Howard Middle School. It's crazy to think about, but 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 Constitution: "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."
