Mr. Andresen's 7th Grade Social Studies

  • Hi! 

    email: landrese@goaj.org

        I'm Mr. Andresen and I teach seventh grade Social Studies.  I have taught in the Apache Junction School District for 22 years now and I'm still loving it.  This is my 10th year at CCJH and I'm really excited about continuing to teach, using the  "One to One" system of students, teachers, and parents all using technology to prepare students to be college ready when they graduate. Our method of instruction will again this year be based on the "Beyond Textbooks" program and AVID.

    ****************Please Help****************

    ** With the "runny nose" season approaching, I would like to ask for parents to donate a box of tissues such as Kleenex. The school district no longer is able to provide them. Thank You.                   

     

    I believe that communication with parents and guardians is very important. I try to answer e-mails within an hour or two of receiving them. 

     

    Please check "Classroom News" sub-pages for weekly planning information.

    Lets have a great 2019-2020 school year!

    complete any assignments. Some assignments, due to their nature, may not be able to be

    made up. In this event, an alternate assignment may be given.
