Students will be expected to participate respectfully in discussion, think critically, and write in a clear and concise manner. This class will cover Europe, Africa and the Middle East in the first semester and Russia, Asia, and Latin America by the second semester.
A bit about Julie Mitchell: I grew up in the Flathead Valley. After receiving my BA in History at Stanford University, I lived in Tokyo, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco before settling in Helena with my husband Doug and raising two children. Professionally, I have worked in government, small business and non-profits prior to receiving my teaching certificate and Masters degree from MSU and joining the Helena Public Schools. I am passionate about my family, public education, Montana, the outdoors and travel.
