Welcome or welcome back to Dixie Heights! My name is Chad Hilmandolar and I am currently teach AP Government & Politics (Freshmen) and World Civ Parts A & B (Sophomores).
I am a graduate from Dixie Heights (2003) who went on to attend the University of Kentucky where I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with a focus in Social Studies and a minor in Psychology (2007). I was then accepted into the MIC Program at the University of Kentucky where I earned a Master's Degree in Secondary Education with a focus in Social Studies (2008),
After graduating from college, I worked in numerous fields within the Special Needs units across Kenton and Boone county until I was able to acquire a teaching job at Grant County High School. I spent three years teaching World Civ, U.S. History and AP U.S. History until I was able to come back home to Dixie! I have been teaching at Dixie for two years now and intend to "ride off into the sunset" as a Dixie Heights Colonel!
Within the classroom, we will utilize many forms of technology to maximize all types of learning methods and introducing historical content such as Google Classroom, Quizlet, Quizizz, etc. We will also use various social media sites to communicate due dates, important announcements for our class, Dixie Heights and the Kenton County School District such as Twitter and Google Classroom.
To contact immediately, please use my Dixie Heights email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and my Twitter account (@DHHSMRH). I look forward to meeting all of my new students and seeing all of my former students this upcoming school year!
