Mr. Josh Petit

Welcome to Mr. Petit's U.S. History class!

Mr. Petit was born and raised in southern Louisiana. He spent 4 years serving in the Marine Corps and completed one combat tour to Iraq in 2006. After completing his contract, Mr. Petit earned his Bachelors degree from Towson University outside Baltimore, Maryland. He soon returned home to complete his Masters degree in Teaching from UNO, where he also earned his certificate to teach secondary Social Studies.

Mr. Petit believes that having a safe learning environment will motivate students to want to do more. He also believes that learning history will open student's eyes to see how far we have come throughout life and how much potential we still have.

When he is not teaching, Mr. Petit enjoys spending time with his family, attending local sporting events and participating in various fitness activities.
