Mr. Sean Mahoney
Hello and welcome to my classroom’s website! My name is Sean Mahoney and I will be your child’s World History teacher. This is my sixth year teaching full-time and my first year here at West Florence High School. Most recently, I have been a Substitute in the Florence One schools, including all the middle and high schools. I have taught Social Studies at Sumter High School, South Florence High School and Manning Junior High.
Originally from Upstate New York, I graduated from State University of New York at Fredonia with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Anthropology, the study of cultures and their development. I completed my Certification in Secondary Social Studies Education at SUNY College at Buffalo, NY. After substituting in Western NY, my family and I decided to move to South Carolina and I began teaching full-time.
I look forward to showing my students the story of World History and the major themes of Social Studies. This may be the only time in their lives that they have an opportunity to study such things.
My goal is to have students leave my class with an understanding of their World--how it developed to where we are and what we can accomplish in order to prepare for the future.
