Mr. Fahey

Seventh grade will pick up with the Fall of Rome, go through the Middle Ages in China, Japan, Africa, and Europe, then finish with the Renaissance, Reformation, Scientific Revolution, Age of Enlightenment, and the Age of Exploration.

 

Now a little about me...I have been teaching for twenty years in the Social Studies and Health Education fields. My experience has been with all grades seventh through twelfth. I currently hold a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Florida with many credits in several different disciplines. I am originally from Key West, Florida, and moved to Chattanooga with my wife, Jennifer, in 2006. We have an 8 year old daughter, Stella. My family and I have a deep love for travel and I have been to 15 different countries. In 2012, I was awarded a Fund For Teachers Fellowship, which paid for me to travel to France and the Netherlands to research Human-Environment Interaction throughout history. That knowledge has become an important part of my teaching in the years since. I am also the sponsor for #NPMMTravels.  In 2018, I took 12 students to Paris, Avignon, and Barcelona.  The trip was amazing and I truly feel that international travel changed the lives of the students who went with me.  I am currently planning to take students to Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland during spring break 2019.  Our 2020 trip is in the early planning stages and it will most likely be to Ireland, England, and Scotland.  If you have any interest in you or your child participating in these adventures, please contact me at faheytravels@gmail.com.   I am looking forward to my tenth year at Normal Park and all of the fun adventures the seventh grade has planned!
