I am Sally Pierotti and this year I am teaching three periods of World History and two periods of AP European History to a most incredible group of sophomores. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton, earning Bachelor of Arts degrees in Journalism and History.
I enjoy teaching and inspiring students to appreciate how history has created the world in which in they live.  My hope and ultimate goal is to have each student understand the events that have created our world as we know it, appreciate his/her role in the future of our world, and realize that he/she can make a difference as a citizen and a contributor in our world.
Online Instruction: 2020-2021
I will be emailing students before the first day of school, September 1, 2020, to provide them with the access code to their assigned Google Classroom.  Students are to register on Google Classroom prior to the first day of instruction.  All assignments, instructions, and due dates can be accessed from Google Classroom.
ZOOM Session Etiquette:
Because the 2020-2021 school year is beginning with an online teaching and learning format, students will be attending daily ZOOM Sessions.  It is important that ZOOM Session rules mirror classroom rules with regard to expected student behavior.  Attached below is a "ZOOM Etiquette" outline of expectations during ZOOM Sessions.
Course Information:  Parents and students can access course information for both World History and AP European History by selecting from the tabs listed to the right.
