Mr. Josh Dobbs

Hello! This will be my first year at Rock Ridge High School and I am incredibly excited! This is going to be a fun year. I am teaching Academic Government and AP Government.

I feel very blessed to be here and it is my goal this year for students to feel empowered and motivated in Social Studies. Students, please feel welcomed in coming to my classroom. Know that you are coming into my class as somebody, and it is my hopes you leave as a better somebody

"The sole justification of teaching, of the school itself, is that the student comes out of it able to do something he or she could not do before. Whatever else we may ask of them, schools exist to remove ignorance, to be places where self-esteem comes from growing mastery over words and numbers and ideas. Where young minds are treated with respect, where excellence is not equated with elitism. Where teaching is rewarded for the art it is, and where both tradition and innovation are juged only by the results they achieve." Jacques Barzun
