    Hello guys!My name is Chris and I'm originally from Dallas, TX and now living in Columbia, SC. I'm a full-time student and part-time worker. (Yay retail!/sarcasm) I'm about to start my final semester as an undergraduate. I'll have my BA in History in December and from there will be starting on my Masters in Education in the spring so that I can teach at the high school level.I found the BHP after I'd been listening to the History of Rome podcast for anyone who would go into more detail about the British Isles in the Roman era. Also interested in the rest of the history of this region. I may be several generations from my ancestors that settled Virginia from Kent but I'd like to learn about the nation from which they came. I'm also a little surprised that people are still using forums. Here I'd thought Facebook had finished most of them off. Glad to see that some can still compete.

    Hi, Chris! I'm new here, too.I realized that there haven't been many responses on the Introductions posts, and I felt that I should improve on that.Forums are not dead, they just have a tendency to sleep for a while!Anyway, it's nice to "meet" you!

    Sounds like a good way to get things going a little bit.Yea, I'm aware they're not totally dead, just that many have shutdown since Facebook took over that market. They certainly do go to sleep for a time.Nice to meet you as well!

    The forums are simmering in the background, staying alive for when Facebook eventually dies.  ;)Which history level are you wanting to teach?  I used to have aspirations to teach California history (which, here, is 4th grade or college level).  I'm trying to remember what high school had in the way of history.  US and World?  Anyways.  WELCOME!

    U.S., World, then American Government are the typical classes given to the history teachers. I can also be anything else that falls under “social studies” for the school district. Some schools offer more specialized and focused history courses, like classes for the World Wars. Just depends on what district I can get into, what special qualifications I get (ex. Advanced, IB-Honors certification). Currently I'd be better suited for U.S. but branching out the last year and a half that being able to do World wouldn't add too much of an extra-burden of learning mostly new material so that I could then turn around and teach students the same information.

    Hi Chris, If anyone would still be operating a forum in the era of Facebook, it would be a history community.  ;)Welcome to the community!
