Welcome to Mr. Stroud's Class!




My name is Mr. Stroud, and I am excited about the 21-22 school year! I will be teaching 8th grade U.S. History Advanced. It is going to be an awesome year, and I am excited to get back to some normalcy. We will still be using a lot of technology, though, so please be patient and make the best use of Google Classroom and the links below to follow along with your student.

About myself, I was born and raised in Texas, where I received my B.A. in History/English, and moved to Florida to be closer to my wife's family. Before moving to Florida, I lived in Tucson, Arizona, where I received my M.A. from the University of Arizona. Go Wildcats!! I love hiking, biking, running, reading and writing, and am very excited to work with you all this year. A little bit about my classes below:
