Welcome to high school here at Brentsville District High School! I am Mrs. Olivia Elsasser. I will be teaching AICE Classical Studies, PreAICE World History 1, and Regular World History 1. 

In Classical Studies, we will be specifically focusing on Ancient Greece and Rome. For both PreAICE WHI and WHI, we will be covering topics spanning from the paleolithic era to the Renaissance. 

This is my fourth year working at BDHS where I not only teach, but assist in directing in the Marching Tigers and I am the sponsor and conductor for the BDHS Pep Band. I'm a graduate from George Mason University with a BA in History and a M.Ed in Secondary Education for Curriculum and Instruction. I am published in the Vanderbilt Historical Review as well ("Rejecting Reason").

My favorite subjects in history include the Renaissance, Ancient Greece and Rome, the Black Death, the Romanov Dynasty, and the Russian Revolution.
