I have been teaching social studies and special education for 16 years. I have taught US History, Government/Civics, World Geography, 20th Century History, Psychology, and Language Arts.
My teaching style various depending on what I am teaching. I try to be very student-directed when possible and incorporate technology frequently.
I have had the honor to present curriculum that I have written at local and national conferences like National Council for Social Studies Conferences, Colorado Council for Social Studies Conference, and Rocky Mountain/Plains Regional Conferences for We The People and Project Citizen.
I have a BA in Political Science and an MA in Special Education.
In the 4th grade, I had an 'educational epiphany' and knew then that I would be a teacher.
