Mr. Foster is an American history teacher at PV with a big heart and a lot of love for his students.

He teaches AP US History and regular American History and has been teaching for twenty-nine  years total. He has now taught at PV for five years!

Mr. Foster is really passionate, and believes in the importance of college and caring teachers.

When prompted on why he chose to teach history, he responded, “In college I became really interested in history because of courses that were taught by amazing professors, that brought me to fall in love with the content.”

Mr. Foster takes pride in the fact that he is able to teach on the AP U.S. History level. In his APUSH class the content has to go very deep in order for the students to gain an understanding of the details of the content, and ultimately succeed in the class,“I am able to teach at a deeper level and understanding due to my passion for the content.”

When it comes to the APUSH exam that Mr. Foster prepares students for every year, he has taken the multiple choice section one time without ever seeing the real test before.

A fun fact about Mr. Foster, is that his favorite president is George Washington.

“He is the most important, because he was present at every creation moment in American History. He is absolutely indispensable, and not only my favorite but the most important.”

Mr. Foster’s wife also works and teaches at PV! Mrs. Foster teaches Honors and AP math. When it comes to the fact that they both work together at the same school,“I chose to work at PV, because then we could work at the same school together.”

Anyone can see through the passion that resonates in his teaching, and the excitement for history in his eyes, that he loves his job and his students.
