Hi there!  My name is Sam Applegate.  I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in May of 2016 where I received my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Social Sciences Education.  I was originally born in Plano, Texas but moved to Gretna in 1999 and lived there for all my childhood.

I find great joy in teaching.  Getting the opportunity to educate our youth is something that holds great value.  It is my hope that throughout a student's time in my classroom they will learn not only the importance of history and the social sciences, but also develop good study habits, learn to collaborate with their peers, and how to critically analyze information on their own.  Helping these students to better prepare for the future is one of the most important aspects of being a teacher!

Besides teaching I am also an assistant coach for the boy's basketball team and a sponsor for FBLA.  My other hobbies include playing golf, being with family and friends and reading.  This school year should be a great one!
