Brother Pete's Pages

Welcome To Brother Pete's Social Studies Pages +

Brother Pete is Mr. Niemeyer in the slightly more formal world. Mr. Niemeyer is primarily a social studies teacher in western Massachusetts, although he does wear other hats and often talks about himself in the third person. Recently he has been dabbling in computer science and motorcycle maintenance. Some of the lessons learned in these new spaces make it back to his classroom.


Always Under Construction: Back in 1999 a student of mine (as part of a class he was taking on web 2.0 design) made for me the first pages for my history and geography classes at MGRHS. Tinkering over the years, modifying his work, starting over from scratch, has afforded me the opportunity to learn a lot about the "inter-webs." I am grateful that I learned early on this: "my students can also be my teachers." This space is one of the sandboxes I play in. Feedback and input is always appreciated.


 By the way: Have a great day. You deserve it, I am certain of that.
