Learning the history of the entire world and its many nations is a complex task, but Bladmir Pizano has been assisting students at Reedley High to understand the timelines and events of human civilization for 24 years. Not only does he teach World History, he also teaches AP (Advanced Placement) World History—a college-level class directed towards students who are willing to challenge themselves—and Mexican American/Latin American History. In addition, Pizano is an instructor for the AVID classes, which help students prepare for college and develop positive study habits that will assist them to become academically independent.
