About Mr. Douglas Massengill

Those who can not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. ~George Santayana The quote you see above is the reason that I teach Social Studies. Yes, as a teacher, I am responsible for teaching a prescribed curriculum to the young people that enter my classroom, but more than that, I am responsible for making sure that they leave my classroom better prepared to be citizens of their communities, state, nation and world. In an increasingly competitive and global world, our students need to know why what they are being forced to learn is so important and how their successes (or failures) will determine the future of the next generation. About me: I love to travel, cook and attend NC State University sporting events (Go Pack!). I graduated from NC State University and am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Middle Grades Education from Gardner-Webb University. I enjoy learning and teaching allows me to be a lifelong student. I am married to a wonderful nurse named Tiffany and we have a miniature dachshund named Harley who is the love of our lives!
