My name is Stephen Frick and I am a U.S. History teacher here at University High School. My goal is to make a positive impact on each of my students to help them grow into the next generation of leaders for this country. I believe that every child can be set up for success and to do well in my class, here are some recommendations for the students:
- Show up early to class
- Be prepared
- Focus on learning
- Ask Questions, be inquisitive
- Do the work, it will pay off in the end
I promise if you do those things, we know you will do well not only in the classroom, but on the End of Course (EOC) exam at the end of the year.
I spend my time coaching basketball, spending time with my 2 children, reading, and finding interesting ways to relay my love of history to my classes. I believe in motos and mantras to help guide kids attitude and I hope they find them inspiring, even if it is 20 years after graduation. With that said, I start with this:
"Let's attack this day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind."
