We all know that the school year can get tiring, and the 3rd nine weeks can become a slump where grades dip.
ITS THE LAST LEG OF THE RACE! LETS WORK HARD AND FINISH STRONG!
Due to Excessive Late Assignments I will no longer be doing a, may turn in until the end of quarter policy, as I have been. I will be deducting 5 points for every day that an assignment is late beyond the due date in powerschool.

Mr. Wesley Steffen
Hi, my name is Mr. Steffen.
I was born in North Virginia, but I was raised in Fayetteville. I went to college in Wilmington and Pembroke. I believe teaching history is about telling a story, a narrative that shares lessons about our past, and how we can learn and do better. Me and my wife have three cats, and live in Surf City. When I taught High School, I coached both Soccer and Swimming. I look forward to teaching you this year.
