Welcome, I am Mr. Negro and I am excited to be your 8th grade Social Studies teacher.
This is my 17th year teaching middle school - the past 13 years at THE Thompson Middle School teaching 8th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. Teaching is a passion and I have had many past teachers (elementary, middle school, high school, and college) that have inspired me to be a life-long learner. Hopefully, I make an impact in your life and that I inspire you to take an interest in our history and to become a life-long learner. I take pride in what I do and I also expect you to take pride in what you do. Together we will explore U.S. History because We Are Historians!
I graduated with my B.A. from U.C. Riverside while playing baseball. I later received my teaching credentials from Cal State Dominquez Hills and my Masters in Educational Technology from the American College of Education. I started my teaching career for Downey Unified and was hired by MVUSD when I moved to Murrieta. Both my daughter attend Murrieta Schools - Madisy 11 (Thompson) Hailey 9 (Murrieta Elementary) Besides history, you will learn that I enjoy camping, fishing, the desert, golf, and the L.A. Angels, Washington Redskins, and USC Trojans - FIGHT ON!
Communication and Haiku
Using Haiku (https://mvusd.haikulearning.com) is an excellent tool to use to locate class lectures, materials, handouts, reminders, updates, etc so that you can have access to material outside of the classroom for your studying and reviewing. The calendar will also be updated to keep you in the loop of daily assignments, activities, and upcoming assessments. If you are absent, Haiku is where you need to look so that you can keep pace of the class curriculum.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Looking forward to another successful year.
