About Mr. Taheri

My Teaching Philosophy

I believe that the classroom is a place where students learn not only content but also important skills that will help them throughout their lives. In addition to learning World History, students will develop the skills to evaluate sources of information, contextualize, corroborate, and create arguments based on evidence. We will also work on purposeful collaboration, presentation skills and using technology to enhance our teaching and learning. While all of the skills and content are important, I find that students learn best when these are delivered in interactive, engaging and entertaining ways.

My Experience

This is my third year teaching at Peterson Middle School and my twelfth year teaching middle school. I received my BA in Political Science with a minor in Education from UC Davis and loved it so much that I stayed there to get my teaching credential and MA in Education.

Outside the Classroom

I love hanging out with my family and watching my young daughter learn and hit new milestones. She definitely keeps me busy, but when I do get free time I enjoy watching my beloved Boston Celtics, going out to eat, and exploring the amazing natural surroundings of the Bay Area.
