Mr. Mark Morgan
Welcome to the world of Business. My name is Mark Morgan and I am so excited to have your student in my class! This year 6th graders will be Exploring Business and Entrepreneurship and 7th/8th graders will be Exploring Economic Systems.
These classes offer students the opportunity to gain skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity while exploring the events of domestic and international businesses.
Exploring Business and Entrepreneurship
Students will gain an understanding of the principles, purpose, and functions of a business. We will also explore the concept of entrepreneurship and the mentality and skillsets needed. My hope is that your student talks with you about companies or careers that interest them and the leadership qualities needed to succeed while they are in school or as they start down whatever career path they may choose.
Exploring Economic Systems
Students will gain an understanding of the different types of Economic systems. We will explore supply and demand as well as how the Federal Reserve, stock market and e-commerce impact the U.S. economy. My hope is your student comes away with an understanding of how our economy works and the impact of our decisions in the world we live in.
I spent 25+ years working in the corporate world with for-profit and non-profit companies and love nothing more than to talk about the many businesses that impact our community and beyond. I graduated with a Sports Management degree from Southwest Baptist University and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. My off time is spent on the soccer field coaching or directing and hanging with my family. I have been married to my amazing wife Stacey for 24 years and have a 15-year-old daughter, a 12-year-old daughter, and a 9-year-old son and a dog named Kamp.
