Professional BiographySeely, AlexanderSocial Studies
Hello, my name is Alexander Seely. This is my 4th year at Briar Woods. I previously taught World History, Geography, and US History both at Briar Woods, and at Menchville in Newport News, Virginia. For the 2019-2020 school year I will be teaching World History 1 and AP US History. I will also be serving as a JV Coach for the Wrestling Team.
In 2016, I graduated from Christopher Newport University with my Masters in Teaching, with a major in American Studies, and minors in History and Leadership Studies. I have also participated in a training course through College Board for AP US history curriculum and testing.
I had the pleasure of traveling around the world while growing up, living in Germany, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt. This has given me a deeper understanding of the various people and cultures of the world, which I then bring to the classroom lessons to help students understand the world outside of the United States, as well as how the US interacts with foreign nations. I enjoy traveling as much as possible. I have recently been to France, Mexico, and Ireland, as well as Oregon, Louisiana, and Missouri. My hobbies also include playing guitar, hiking, cooking, going to the movies and studying cinematography. I am also the proud new owner of a 1 year old puppy, named Ellie.
