  Welcome! My name is Mr. LoPresti.

This year, I am teaching 6th grade US History and 8th grade Civics and Economics.

For 6th grade US History, it is going to be a fantastic journey as students learn about Pre-Columbian American cultures; they study the early history of the United States and the ideas and events that strengthened the union and drove westward expansion; and they analyze the issues and major events surrounding the Civil War.

For 8th grade Civics and Economics, students will explore the foundations and structure of the federal and state governments, how they work, and what our rights and responsibilities are as citizens of this great nation and the beautiful state of Virginia.

Both classes will continue to develop historical thinking skills through the study of primary and secondary sources.

This year will be my second at Reagan Middle School, and I am honored to serve such an amazing group of students and to give back to the community.  I have lived in the Haymarket area for 12 years and began teaching social studies after working in the museum construction industry.  I have a son in elementary school, and my wife is a high school English teacher.  We love seeing live music, hiking, and traveling together. 

Students and parents/guardians: please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions throughout the year or need support!  Below is my daily schedule, contact information, and office hours.

Have a wonderful 2019-2020 school year!
