Welcome to American history at Weaver Academy!
My name is Nadav Avital and I could not be more excited to be beginning this second year here at Weaver Academy!
I teach American History I, American History II, and the Advanced Placement United States History course (affectionately known as APUSH).
While this is my second year at this truly amazing school, it is my eighteenth year of teaching after having taught in Brooklyn, NY, and here in Greensboro for the past decade.
I have earned my bachelor's degree from Brooklyn College - City University of New York and my master's from the University of Michigan.
When I am not lesson planning, grading, teaching, writing college recommendations, tutoring, or reading history books (this summer I finished Eric Foner's The Story of American Freedom, John Meacham's The Soul of America, David McCulloch's The American Spirit (on tape), and another one by him, 1776)... I spend much of my time with my wife and two sons and general adventures around Greensboro and the state including soccer, cycling, guitar and chess playing (proficient, at best, in both), and attending as many free college sports games as possible.
Even though this year will be just slightly different (again...) we will engage in the examination of the United States' story and the "great experiment" of this fascinating country. Indeed, what a historic period we are experiencing as citizens and scholars. I have a true passion for both learning and teaching about our collective story as a nation, as it is only such that we know how we arrived at our current station, and look forward to a future of which you will ultimately write the story.
Whatever this year will throw at us, I have full faith that we will persevere and achieve great heights to succeed in our American history and APUSH classes!
YOU. GOT. THIS.
