My name is Mike Drew and I will be your child’s Social Studies teacher this year. I think it is important that we get to know each other hopefully forming a strong bond that will help ensure the success of your child. Because I will be spending almost an hour each day with your child, I’d like to take this opportunity to share a little about myself. 

 

I have been teaching here at Wilby High School for 15 years and prior to that I attended Southern Connecticut State University where I received a Bachelor’s of Science with Certification degree. 

 

My mission is to promote a love for learning in my students and to make it clear that education is their path to a better life. Someone once said that “a good teacher is one who makes himself less and less necessary”. My philosophy is to excite my students about learning so that they want to become self-directed learners.

 

I look forward to the upcoming year, one which will no doubt be filled with lots of excitement and productivity. Your child deserves my utmost respect and I expect the same in return. I know we can work together and really make this  school year a successful one.

Wall of Fame

For our unit on the Industrial Revolution, students were asked to become problem solvers and tasked with figuring out a way to mass produce sweaters without plugging machines into electrical outlets!!!

In their minds, they traveled back in time to the 1830s and illustrated their ideas in a project called Mill Times. They were scored using our school’s Effective Problem Solver Rubric and, of course, were given it ahead of time so they knew what they needed to do to get a good grade… Below are the exemplars!
