Seth Gams: Social Studies Teacher

Hi everybody! Hi Mr. Gams!

If you can guess the TV show reference from that opening greeting, good on you!  I guarantee this won't be the only TV/Movie reference I use in school, and I hope my students enjoy hearing them on a daily basis.  As you can tell I am a fun loving dude, but when it comes to History and Social Studies as a whole I am extremely serious and determined to make my students' passion for learning come to life.

I grew up in the Twin Cities bouncing from school to school, until at age 7 when my parents moved my family to Mora, MN.  I graduated from Mora High School in 2011, before going off to Bemidji State for my college undergrad. After finishing my Associates Degree at BSU, I went to the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities and acquired my Bachelor of Arts in History. It was during this time that I realized that teaching was the calling for me. I ended up applying for a position in the Masters of Education program at Augsburg University where I ended up going for my Graduate studies.  While at Augsburg I have completed roughly 90% of my Masters degree as well as fully completing my Minnesota 5-12 Social Studies License. 

I still live in Mora after all these years. I live there with my wife, one dog, and my two cats. I enjoy watching my favorite sports teams: Twins, Vikings, Wild, and of course the Golden Gophers. I love reading historical biographies and autobiographies. I also love watching classic war movies and listening to classic rock music.  

It is my goal to bring my passion for Social Studies to the classroom each and every day so that hopefully some of that passion can be passed on to my students and allow them to appreciate Social Studies as well.   Together we can make Social Studies Fun Again!

Go Eagles!
