Welcome to Mr. Nuss's Page!

Hello everyone! My name is Mark Nuss and I'm so excited to be back at Prospect Ridge Academy for another fantastic school year. Please make sure you've joined the correct Google Classroom (codes are below) for the course you're in; I use Google Classroom for nearly everything so you need to have access to it and check it every day. 
 
A little bit about myself so that you can get to know me better:
 
1. I'm a Colorado native and have lived here for most of my life. I did spend five years in Eugene, Oregon as a kid and still love visiting the PNW, but Colorado is home sweet home. 
 
2. I earned by Bachelor of Arts in American History and my Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction, both from the University of Denver. Within the field of Social Studies, my particular areas of interest and expertise are: psychology, economics, and modern American history (especially political and social history).  
 
3. I tied the knot with my wife Amelia in June 2015. We have a two-and-a-half year old son, one dog, and three cats so needless to say I'm quite busy at home!
 
4. A quick list of some of the things I enjoy and spend lots of time on outside of school: playing disc golf, playing drums, reading, playing video games and board games. 
 
5. A quick list of what I'm looking forward to the most this year: preparing my AP classes to be successful on the AP Exam, developing your understanding of the inner workings of the human mind and brain, engaging your interest in economics / developing your interest in economics if you don't yet have one, increasing your critical thinking skills, and most of all being part of a community of learners with all of you! It's going to be a fantastic and fun year, and I can't wait to get started!
