• Come take a trip with me - to a different time and place.  Walk with me in the footsteps of the Cherokee as we make our way through the foothills of the Blue Ridge.  Ride the Atlantic waves as we dream of our new lives in Carolina.  Walk the cobblestone streets of Charles Town as we cross paths with the Pinckneys, Heywards, Rutledges, and Middletons.  Cross the fields at the Cowpens as we battle the British for our independence.  Feel the sweat drop from your brow as we work the fields in the noon day sun.  Listen to the roar of the cannons as shots rain down on Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor.  Open your mind to all the possibilities in my classroom as we create our own history this year.  So if you're ready, come take a trip with me.
