Welcome to Mr. Kash's History Page at MrKash.com. I am a history teacher at Madison Middle School in North Hollywood, California. I have designed this website to be used by history students and teachers interested in exploring the Internet as part of their studies. The Parents section provides parents access to what students are doing in my class on a daily basis. The site is frequently updated to highlight the celebrations and events of the month. I hope you enjoy yourself and learn something. Feel free to email me with comments and suggestions at jkash@mrkash.com.
