I have taught for six years at Evanston Township High School, founder of the Minority Student Achievement Network, in the fields of U.S. History, Western Civilization, Political Science, Psychology, and African History. I have taught students in both tracked and mixed ability courses, and the students in my classroom come from a variety of ethnic and economic backgrounds. I have also taught at Northwestern University's Center for Talent Development in the field of Geopolitics and co-authored the teacher's guide to "A History of US," a middle school US History textbook. In 2006, I accepted a position as Upper School History teacher at Francis Parker school in Chicago.
I teach through a variety of methods, including class discussion, simulations, and both large and small group activities. In my classroom, I concentrate on writing skills as they relate to history, as seen through a heavy reliance upon use of the DBQ (Document Based Question) as a means of instruction.
