Mr. John Winand, Jr.
I have taught 7th grade World History at Muhlenberg Middle School since 2007 after beginning my teaching career at Joseph Cooper Ferguson in North Philadelphia, where I taught Early American History (8th Grade) and World Geography (7th Grade). Over the last few years, I have coached cross country and track and field at middle and high school levels. I have also advised the school newspaper. I look forward to teaching and meeting all my 7th-grade students this year!
My academic background is primarily focused on political science, but I have also studied history and Spanish at Kutztown University. Most of my academic research has focused on Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East; however, I have been focusing on the countries of East Asia in recent years as I continue to take offerings hosted by the National Consortium for Teaching About Asia (NCTA).
I recently began working towards my Ed.D in Transformational Teaching at Kutztown University.
