Mr. Sean Mahoney
Hello and welcome to my classroom’s website! My name is Sean Mahoney and I will be your child’s Human Geography teacher. This year I will be teaching in WFHS Virtual Academy. This is my ninth year teaching full-time and my fourth year here at West Florence High School. 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 introducing my students to the themes of Geography and Social Studies. 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.
