8th Grade U.S. History
Mr. Tim Klobe

About Me: Heading into the 20-21 school year, this is my first year at Antioch Upper Grade School, but my 7th year teaching. My start in education began in the post-secondary world teaching at John Wood Community College in Quincy, IL, before joining the Social Studies department at Quincy High School in 2015. A year later, I was asked to join my alma mater, Quincy University, as an adjunct professor teaching Public Speaking.
U.S. History has always been a passion of mine for about as long as I can remember hearing stories about World War II from my grandfathers and great uncles. In my opinion, it is impossible to know where you can go without knowing and learning from where you have been as not only people, but also as a society. Through the good and not so good things in our past, we can truly envision a more fair and equitable future for all.
The skills needed to help our society achieve this goal are paramount to what we do in 8th Grade Social Studies; critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration and the ability to communicate effectively. It is incredibly important to me that all my students are able to hone these skills in a positive, safe and fun atmosphere.
If you have any specific questions or concerns, or information on how I can help you learn, please let me know.
