    Welcome students and parents American History-8. My name is Fred Gillenwater. Since 2004 I have taught 8th grade American History here at Tippecanoe Middle School. However, my teaching career began at Sinclair Community College in 2001 teaching the Western Civilization sequence and various humanities courses. I attended Wright State University graduating with a B.A. in History and an M.A. in History in 1999 and 2001 respectively. In 2003 I continued my education at the University of Dayton and graduated in 2010 with a M.S. Ed. in Interdisciplinary Studies. My current licensure is 7-12 Comprehensive Social Studies and I am a Google Certified Level I Teacher. Sarah, my wife of 19 years, and I have two children. Zada is an 9th grader at THS and Finn still thinks he is a Jedi Knight, but also aspires to be a ninja spy. We moved back to Tipp City in 2012 and I genuinely enjoy living in the community where I teach.  




      "According to state standards, I am certified as a Highly Qualified Teacher (HQT) which ensures the school district, and parents, that I am offering a quality education for all my students."
