"Mr. Sousa is considered to be our schoolís resident "expert" on matters of American government and has been affectionately referred to as the "Mr. Bill of Rights."  Billís teaching assignments include: Civics and Government, American Politics, Constitutional Rights and United States History.  He has taught all ability levels.  He particularly enjoys sharing his knowledge and love for America with the foreign exchange students who pass through our halls each year.

Each year on Constitution Day Mr. Sousa delivers an inspirational address to the entire student body on the significance of our nationís founding document.
