Dr. Edward Oswald
This school year, I am teaching World History Modern for Semester 1 and AP Psychology and World History Modern for Semester 2. My educational and professional background consists of the following. I have an Ed.D. in Instructional Technology, an M.S. in Library Science, and a B.A. in International Affairs. I have over 25 years of experience in various teaching and administrative capacities with the Miami-Dade Public School System in Miami, Florida. Previously, I have taught AP European History, AP World History, World History Honors, World History Regular, U.S. History Regular, African-American History, Business Technology, and Web Design. This will be my fourth year at North Monterey County High School. I will be teaching World History during the first semester and AP Psychology and World History during the second semester.
On a personal level, I was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida but lived in Miami, Florida for over 40 years. My great-great-great-grandfather, whose name was Juan Carlos Villar along with his brother, were soldiers in the army of the Spanish Governor of Louisiana General Galvez. They took part in the siege, battle, and capture of Pensacola by General Galvez's army in the spring of 1781. This little known battle took place four months before the defeat of the British at Yorktown by General George Washington. If General Galvez had failed, it is possible that Florida could have remained British and become part of Canada since it was a haven from the rebellious colonies of loyalists and runaway slaves. We all have a historical background. Do you know what yours is?
