Hello and welcome! I'm Kyrie Adderholt, your teacher for this amazing class. I am currently a 6th year Ravenclaw and Ravenclaw's Head Prefect. I am a member of RQT. This class is back from a one year hiatus while I completed my MA. In RL I have a BA in History and a pending MA in Holocaust Studies (waiting for marks is awful!). I have taken multiple classes on witchcraft during my time at university and a lot of that information has been used to create this class. I hope you all enjoy it!

Please post your introductions here :)

Hi I'm Kaiwa Alexandra.
I'm Miss Adderholt's biggest fan who likes to stalk her everywhere she goes
I'm a third year Eagle who likes to wear quidditch robes to sleep.
It's so exciting that Kyrie brings back this class. Because I've always wanted to take this class to understand why actually Zoki Phantom is a witch because the history of witchcraft looks interesting.
IRL I'm a 21 yo young lady who likes to eat cookies and ice cream.
Nice to meet you all :D

Hello all! My name is Nyre Stefendottir, and I'm a first year! I'm really looking forward to both this class, and also to making friends! It's nice to meet you all.

I'm taking this class as the history of Witchcraft has always fascinated me, and I would love to know more. I've owned quite a few books on witchcraft, witch trials, and famous witches, but I think that taking a class like this will teach me more.

IRL, I'm a sixteen year-old Canadian who's an author and artist.

Hi everyone! I'm Scarlet Leslie, Ravenclaw professor. I wanted to take this class ever since Kyrie first offered it, but I didn't think I would be able to put enough effort in with the pharmacy school workload. So, now that I graduated, I am so glad that she brought this class back! My background is mainly science, but I do enjoy small doses of history.

You can usually find me searching for snitches to catch (yay seeking!), playing volleyball, or snacking on cookies that I've stolen from Kaiwa.

See you around!

Hello, I'm Natasha Wynterborne, a second year Gryffindor.

I love reading, especially fantasy and horror. I just finished the 14th Dresden Files book. I also love movies and spending time with my cat.

I signed up for this class because I enjoy history in general, and I think witchcraft is a fascinating topic. I want to learn more about it, if it varies from country to country, and why certain groups were accused and/or persecuted.

Hi I'm Lilly Anderson! I'm an ickle Hufflepuff so, I'm in my first year.
I love to read and snow ski. I am currently re-reading the mysterious benedict society. I also love hanging out with my friends although I am shy around people I don't know.
I am taking this class because I love history and when I looked at the website I saw that it some of the best lessons and questions. So I am very happy to be taking this class and reading the interesting lessons and learning why witches were persecuted.
Thanks Scarlet!

Hi! I'm Amy Charz, I'm a third year Ravenclaw who adores Quidditch. IRL, I'm 19 and studying English. I'm usually either reading, botting, playing a video game, watching Doctor Who, or doing last minute homework.

I wanted to take this class because I'm actually a witch's familiar. I thought it might be a good idea to learn more about the background of witchcraft, so I can better understand the antics of Zoki Phantom.

Hi. Name's Sierra Potter, second year of Gryffindor. Likes ice cream, cake, cookies, and anything that sweet but dislikes girl's stuffs like dolls and others. I enjoy reading, sleeping, drawing, and daydreaming.

I take this class because of my interest in history. And I think witchcraft will be interesting too, as same as war.
Cheers, Sierra.

Hiya! I'm Sandy (Sandra Bloomwicks) a 7th year (finally) Ravenclaw, crazy huh. I'm excited and scared to be taking my N.E.W.Ts and graduating. I have no idea what I'm going to do after I graduate. I've been toying with the idea of staying in academia and becoming a professor, but that assumes I'm not lazy.

I chose History of Witchcraft because the lessons looked amazing and I felt like I should know more about it. A long time ago, I took a writing seminar on Witches and Witchcraft which covered mostly witchcraft in Europe, and I saw that this class covered such a variety of countries across time and thought it would be a good follow up (almost 10 years later o.0)

In real life, I work at a tech company in California that makes brain training games (Lumosity), it's a ton of fun. On the side, I love performing circus (flying trapeze and aerial hoop) as well as dancing, mostly modern.

Hi, everybody! I am a 6th year Hufflepuff. I have been on HOL Virtual Hogwarts since 2002. I am hoping that I will have the team to complete all of my classes this year and next to finally graduate and continue to become a professor or something. Looking forward to his class.

In real life, I work in a doctor's office in medical records. I just graduated from school last year as a pharmacy technician and am looking for a job in that field.

Hi! I'm Mattie, a third year Ravenclaw prefect who's spent the last two years wondering why she didn't just sign up with the name "Mattie" in the first place <<. A few things that I like are comic books, science fiction, baking, chemistry, procrastinating (clearly...), and Quidditch.

I remember wanting to take this class my first year, so I was glad to see it being offered again! I usually gravitate toward science- or mathematics- related things, but I do like to learn about history sometimes too.

Hello all! As it's obvious from some of our ruder classmates above, I'm Zoki Phantom and have been marked a witch by our not so lovely teacher. I enjoy writing, tv shows, graphics, and all things magic. Which doesn't necessarily make me a witch, so I'm here to find out if I'm one or not, and to see how my possible ancestors have been treated throughout the ages. Yes, possible revenging coming if you haven't been nice to my family!

But yes, I've been meaning to take this class for a while, though last year it only hit me during the midterm period that I wanted to take it and I wanted to take the whole course. So here's me this year, wreaking havoc in Miss Adderholt's class. ;)
