My name is Mike Lade, and I love history! In my own history terms such as cowboy, truck driver, hunting guide, farmer, business owner and salesman are words that have been used to describe me…but my favorite descriptor is teacher!
My wife, Penny, and I have served people our entire adult lives. Through pastoral ministry, on the mission field and now in the classroom we have invested our energy to make the lives of others as great as they can be.
Our class goal this year is to learn a great deal of the facts and lessons history can teach us. Philosopher George Santayana said, “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Therefore, learning the facts and lessons of the past are key to preparing for and experiencing a bright future.
It is my honor to teach your student history this year!
