Hi! My name is Mr. Shawn Reagin (he/him) and I'll be your teacher this year. I am originally from Ocean City, Maryland. I'm currently a PhD Candidate at Georgia State University (go Panthers!). I earned my Master's in history from UNC Greensboro (go Spartans!). I earned my Bachelor's in history from Salisbury University (go Seagulls!).
I've taught several history classes at Georgia State University and Morehouse College over the last 5 years including: Survey of US History, World History to 1500, World History since 1500, Topical Approach to World History since 1500, German History to 1900, German History since 1900, Russia and the Soviet Union since 1861, Film and the Holocaust, Europe since 1789, the World at War 1914-1918, and the Second World War. I've published in several academic journals including: Scientia Militaria: Journal of South African Military Studies; Focus on German Studies; German Studies Review; Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History; and Essays in History.
In terms of hobbies, I am an avid gamer and have competed in international gaming competitions, I'm a big Marvel movie fan, I watch history documentaries a lot, and I love sports teams from Washington D.C. (Nationals, Capitals, Commanders, Wizards, Mystics). I also love to spend time with my baby niblings.
When it comes to Civics and U.S. History, I am particularly interested in learning more about the role of the European process of Enlightenment and its effects on American philisophes. When it comes to AP European History, I am particularly interested in learning more about the impact of European Empire in Africa--for example, my current dissertation research investigates German settler colonialism in German Southwest Africa (Namibia) from 1828-1933 and I wrote my master's thesis as an investigation of British soldiers in German East Africa (Tanzania) from 1914-1918.
I have an office phone 336-316-5800 ext. 59626, but the BEST way to reach me is via email at email@example.com.
