• 2023-2024 School Year is Kicking Off

    Posted by Tim Klobe on 8/22/2023

    WELCOME!

    My name is Mr. Klobe, and I will be teaching US History in your final year at AUGS.  I’m uber excited to get to know each of you better as we progress through this year!

     

    This year should be a fun ride through US History spanning from the end of the Civil War all the way through September 11th.  We will use interactive games/activities, Document Based Questions (DBQs), multimedia projects, Socratic Seminars among other things throughout the year to learn all about the story of the U.S.

    ABOUT ME

    Originally from St. Louis, MO, my wife and I along with our 4-year-old son moved to Lake County in 2019.  Teaching wasn’t the original career path I thought I would take, but after working as a TV sports anchor it became abundantly clear that my heart was in teaching.

     

    I’ve taught at the university and junior college level as well as high school before joining AUGS at the start of the ‘20-’21 school year.  My passion for history stretches back to when I was a young child and talking with my grandpas and great uncles about their service during World War II.  I hope to instill in my students a love and respect for history, because I truly believe that if we don’t know the faults of our past, we are doomed to repeat them.
