I am Anthony Valentin, a History teacher currently serving at Stuyvesant High School. I am responsible for the construction and maintenance of this, the latest rendition of the World History & Geography course website. The site traces its origins to September 2001 when our school building had to be evacuated and we took temporary residence at our sister school, Brooklyn Technical High School.
