Class Experience

Recognize the birthdays of each branch
Name career and academic opportunities within each branch. 
I am a licensed teacher of history and have taught for over 15 years in a public classroom.
I am a wife of a United States Marine and the mother of a retired Army soldier. I have spent a lot of time visiting military museums, monuments, cemeteries, and veterans in both the USA and Europe. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class discusses the United States military. The first job of any military is to protect and defend. Therefore, the topic of shooting, death, and injury may come up during each lesson. I do not glamourize killing of anyone foreign, enemy, or citizen during the lesson. Every death is a loss. 
The main goal of this class is to answer questions focused on the history and goals of each branch- not the destruction that has happened in the past or present. 

As a parent of a military member who suffered injury when in combat, I understand fully the dangers of any  military branch or risk a persontakes in  service for their country.

 I speak French and love to travel to countries where I can immerse...
