8th Grade Global Studies - North Junior High School
Welcome to Mr. Watson's Page!
Hello! My name is Cortney Watson and this is my 12th year teaching at North Junior High School. I am originally from Canada and have lived in many parts of the United States. I love to travel and learn about people around the world and then bring those experiences back to the classroom. I am fluent in French and love to try to learn other languages as well. In the summer, you might see me traveling the world, deep in the woods or on the golf course. In the winter, you might see me traveling the world, deep in the woods or at the curling rink.If you need to get my attention, here are a couple of ways:firstname.lastname@example.orgRoom 257 at North Junior HighDaily ScheduleAdvisory 8th Grade 8:30 - 8:45Period 1 8th Grade Global Studies 8:48 -9:39Period 2 8th Grade Global Studies 9:42 - 10:33Period 3 8th Grade Honors Global Studies 10:36 - 11:33Period 4 Eagle Time 11:33 - 12:00Lunch D 12:00 - 12:33Period 5 Prep Period. 12:34 - 1:25Period 6 8th Grade Global Studies 1:28 - 2:20Period 7 8th Grade Global Studies 2:23 - 3:15
