Welcome to the history of the United States. My name is Christopher Ganyo and I teach AP U.S. History and Level U.S. History at Willis High School. I am entering my 5th year of teaching, my 2nd year at Willis HS. I hold a Bachelor's and Master's degree in History from Sam Houston State University. I am a certified AP Reader for College Board that grades the essay portions of the AP U.S. History Exams. There is more to history than just remembering random facts, dates, people, or events. History is knowing, recognizing, and understanding patterns of the past that present themselves to our lives on a daily basis that affect us in various ways. It is my passion to present historical content to students so that they can see these patterns and help them make the connections on how past events affect them in the present.
