McKeown, Brian - Social Studies

Welcome to my Classroom
Brian McKeown

Hello and welcome to my classroom website.  I teach Social Studies at Erwin High School.  I have been teaching at Erwin High School since the 2012-2013 school year.  I have lived in the area since 2000 when I moved to Asheville from Chicago, Illinois.  I have two sons who are not yet Elementary School aged!  

The classes I teach are available on your child's Canvas page and the Canvas sites are updated with the assignments for each day.  I have taught Leadership, World History, American History I, Civics and Economics and AP Psychology.  I am looking forward to adding American History II to my repertoire this year.   

My philosophy on education is that students need to be pushed to their highest potential.  I keep very high expectations for my students because I know they are capable of greatness.  I attempt to teach my students not only the content as assigned by the North Carolina Department of Instruction, but also the lessons of compassion, integrity, and excellence.  It is my hope that a young person leaves my classroom proud of the academic and personal growth they achieved in my classroom.  If you ever have any questions about your student's progress in my course please feel free to email or call me.
