7TH GRADE INFORMATIONSettlers being guided west

Welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies my name is Mr. Palmer and I will be guiding your children through multiple areas of study within United States History. Originally, I hail from Northern California where I obtained my k-12 education before moving on to Brigham Young University-Idaho. There I received my education degrees in History and English in 2013. While this will be my first year at Stapley, I have had the opportunity to teach in various locations. I completed my student teaching at South Middle School in Nampa Idaho for 8th Grade Social Studies. Following that experience, I spent two years short term and long-term substitute. After moving my family to Mesa, I taught 7th Grade Social Studies and English Language Arts at Champion Schools South Mountain. Beyond teaching, I have competed and coached on several teams for Wrestling (12 years), Swimming (13 years), Soccer (10 years), and Stunt (1 Year). My desire to teach middle school has never failed and I want to bring all my experiences to Stapley to create an amazing school year.
