Welcome to American History II

  • Dear parents and students:

    Welcome to American History II! This course covers United States history from the time period after the Civil War to the present.

    I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year and I am pleased to have the opportunity to be teaching American History II.  I have a Bachelor's degree in History from Washington and Jefferson College where I was inspired by professors who made history come alive.  I will offer diverse approaches to the course to reach each individual's attention in hopes of making history come alive for them as well. 

    Students, I am so excited that you will be in my class again!  Please know that I will do my best to make this school year your best and most successful one ever!  

    Parents, I am honored to be able to teach your child, and I promise to do my best to help them become successful and reach their full potential.  If at any time I can be of help to you or answer any questions you may have, please fell free to contact me by email or phone.  I can be reached at pbriggs@fortcherry.org or 724-796-1551 or 724-356-4445.

    Lets make it a great school year!  


    Mrs. Patty Briggs

  • Rooted in the word 'history' is 'story.' And America's story is exceptional. It's amazing. Younger students should learn that we have always been and continue to be a land of immigrants - a land committed to bold new ideas.
