Mr. Chris Hamill
Hi! I'm Chris Hamill and I am your son/daughter's AP European History teacher. I have been teaching at TVHS since 1996 and taught AP Euro since 1998. I know for some of you that this is your first venture into an AP class and for others this is your second (third, fourth, or more) child to be in my class. My own daughters have taken my class recently, so I am very aware of the demands of AP Euro. Actually, because of their experience I have lightened up on the homework a bit so that it is a little more manageable with students' busy schedules. Anyway, I am going to try to send an email to you once a week so that you are informed of what is going on in my class on a weekly basis. I'm hoping with positive parent-teacher contact that you will be able to provide support for them when needed. Please feel free to contact me if you have concerns. Email is the best option since I have trouble during the day trying to find time to call. Plus, after school is pretty busy with my four daughters, so when I can I get to the emails as soon as possible. Sometimes that is at 11:00 at night. I feel that is too late for a phone call, but not an email. I always hyperlink my homework schedules on my webpage as well as other pieces of information that might be helpful for my students.
