Hello! My name is Jim Wiggs and this is my 13th year here at Lake Region; I teach American History. Throughout almost all of my 20 years of teaching, I have taught some type of history. Growing up, I was fascinated with the history of our country, as well as other countries. I loved reading and hearing stories about the various historical events that took place throughout the world, and as I got older, I strongly felt God wanted me to go into teaching as a career. I truly enjoy talking about the different historical events our country has encountered throughout the years to the students I teach. I want them to appreciate where we came from as a country, but also where we are heading. It is my goal to see each student knowledgeable in history, but also to leave here and become productive individuals in the future and contribute to society in a positive way.
