Welcome to 6th grade Social Studies!


Welcome to 6th grade Social Studies! 

My name is Mr. Klein. I have  been teaching for 19 years in Cobb County; I taught 4th grade at Hayes Elementary and 6th and 7th grade at Palmer Middle. I am originally from Buffalo, NY and am a huge Buffalo Bills fan, all over sports fan, coffee lover and aficionado of all things fried, especially wings! I have 3 kids: a 8th grader, 4th grader, and a 1st grader.

 I look forward to teaching this year. In  6th grade, we will cover Europe, Latin America, Australia and Canada. For each unit, we will teach the geography, history, government, & economics.
