My name is Chris Mallek and I have been teaching Social Studies on the high school level for 25 years. I currently teach AP World History, PreAP World History, History and Geography of the World and Edgenuity. I have a Bachelor’s or Arts in the Teaching of History from the University of Illinois and a Masters of Arts in Education & Leadership from St. Xavier’s University. I am in my 14th year with CGUHSD. Prior to moving to Arizona I taught for 11 years in Illinois just outside of Chicago. I have amazing twin daughters who are in their senior year. One at Union and the other at Perry HS. I am an avid hiker who has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and hiked to Everest Base camp in Nepal. I serve as member of our Curriculum Cadre and our PLC Guiding coalition. I am dedicated to the education of my students and hope that when they leave my class they are more knowledgeable about their world and the importance they have in it.
