    Welcome to Coach Blevins' United States History website. The website will be used to update and inform students and parents of the expectations in this class. The hope is that an informed student and parent can work as a team along with the educator to provide the student the opportunity to become a life-long learner in general, but in History as well.
     
    Please feel free to contact Coach Blevins at any time if you have any issues, concerns, or suggestions. The website will be a "work in progress" and students and parents should check on a regular basis for any updates.
