Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Wagner is a graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VPI&SU) better known as Virginia Tech. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Education with an emphasis in Social Studies. I am one of the last to hold this degree from Virginia Tech before the College of Education was absorbed by the College of Liberal Arts. I have taken Several Graduate Courses at the University of Virginia, Longwood University and through the Northern Virginia Community College program of studies.
I spent the first part of my teaching career at Loudoun County High School - 13 years. There, I was involved with teaching World Geography, US/VA Government and US/VA History. I have taught, through Summer School and Adult Education classes all of the Social Studies courses SOL and others. I joined Park View High School 22 years ago and have been learning throug my experiences here how to work with a variety of students, subjects and personel.
I have now been tasked to learn a new set of instructional skills that will test all of my years of experience. Thank you to my students,their parents and my collegues as we make this new adventure one for both of us. I appreciate your patience as I feel as though I am a first year teacher after serving Loudoun County for 34 years.
Welcome to US/VA Government - the new addition...I look FORWARD to an exciting new year with you and all of the exciting new experiences that we will develop together.
