Mr. John Winand, Jr.
I have been teaching 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 the middle school and high school levels. I have also advised the school newspaper. I look forward to teaching my first sections of American Cultures in the 2020-2021 school year.
My academic background is in political science but I have also studied history and Spanish at Kutztown University. The majority of my academic research has been 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).
Most recently, I have begun to take the required courses to earn my Curriculum and Instruction certification at Kutztown University and hope to continue my studies there in the future.
