Welcome to Middle School History!
My name is Doug Dearden, and I am glad to be back at Trout Lake School for my 42nd year to teach middle school history classes. In 2021-22, this includes U.S. History and Geography for both 6th and 7th grade, and Washington State History for 8th grade. In our US History course, the students will be covering US Geography, Colonization, American Revolution and Westward Expansion, and in Washington History the focus will be on learning about Washington State's unique history and its place in our global society. I look forward to working with my students and helping history to come ALIVE for them!
