Welcome to Speirs' Nogales High School webpage. This is my 16th year teaching at Nogales High School in the Social Studies department. After receiving an A.A. and A.S. at Citrus College, I obtained a B.A. in history from Cal Poly Pomona. This is where I also received a preliminary teaching credential. Immediately after becoming credentialed, I spent two years developing professional skills through the Rowland Unified School District BTSA/Induction program. Through this program I was awarded a Professional Clear Credential in Social Sciences. I continued to obtain a Master’s Degree in Education from Cal Poly.

Some quotes to think about:
"Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results." ---Machiavelli
"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past." ---George Orwell
"The end of law is, not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom." ---John Locke
"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit." ---Aristotle
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” ---Albert Einstein
"Go for it! Have Fun!" ---C. Michelle B.A.B.
"I know I was born and I know that I'll die, the in between is mine." ---E.V.
