Mrs. Amanda Gudmundsson

Welcome to Athens High School!

I have my Education Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, Masters in History and Secondary Education, and a Bachelor's in Modern European History with a minor in Political Science. 


  • Welcome to Dual Enrollment American History




    My Name Is Amanda Gudmundsson, Ed.s, and I Will Be Your Instructor. 

    Your survey of American History will cover events from the pre-colonial period until the modern era. This course will provide you with a general knowledge of the basic historical themes, events, developments, and persons that have shaped American history. This class is designed to develop and promote critical thinking, communication, and global awareness.


         In Government and Economics, you’ll explore economics; the study of human choices in the face of limited resources. The course covers basic market concepts such as scarcity, supply and demand, government regulation, and trade. You’ll learn useful life skills in the personal finance section of the course. You’ll examine modern issues in economics such as poverty, modern farming, and the complicated problems faced by modern cities.

    Remember, communication is key to a successful course. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email,  or Zoom conference --appointment only. 

    I am here to help you succeed :-) 

    Looking forward to the semester! 

    Mrs. G
