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.
My adademic background is in political science but I have also studied history and Spanish. The majority of my reasearch has been focused on Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East. Recently I have been focusing on the countries of East Asia. Last year, I completed the introductory seminar course offered by the National Consortium of Teaching about Asia (NCTA). This year I will be following that up with a course about Medieval Japan.
