World Cultures and US History I

about 1 year ago

World Culture Quote: "Culture is the sum of all the forms of art, of love, and of thought, which, in the coarse of centuries, have enabled man to be less enslaved." --- Andre Malraux (French Historian)

American History Quote: "Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." --- Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address

My name is Jennifer Matlack Tubbs.  Welcome to my website.  I teach eleventh grade World Cultures, and ninth grade American History I.  I am also the department chairperson for the Social Studies Department. I am active in The Curwensville-Pike Township Historical Society.  We are always looking for new people that are interested in keeping Curwensville's history alive!   I can be reached atjtubbs@curwensville.org  and (814) 236-1100 ext. 234 .
