TEACHING EXPERIENCE

In 2012 I was chosen the Gilder Lehrman History Teacher of the Year for the state of Oregon and was awarded the American Historical Associations Beveridge Family History Teaching Prize for innovation in the teaching of history. I have previously taught all four years of High School social studies including Government and Economics, in an International Baccalaureate Small School within a large urban High School. I currently teach 8th grade Honors US History in Oregon in a 1:1 ratio computer lab predominantly using curriculum of my own design. I am also the Department Chair and a leadership/steering team member and a Data Team Leader for our school. I am also our sites EdTech Cadre representative and also teach an elective called Games, Computers, and Programming to both 7th and 8th graders. In addition, I am also an instructor in a Masters of Education credentialing program near Portland, Oregon where I teach Social Studies methods courses and Middle School Philosophy.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is a progressive one where I try to meet my students vast array of needs. I believe in a lot of reading aloud to my students, competitive games and simulations as well as project AND problem based learning. I am a firm believer that if I can have all of my students leaving my class with competent critical thinking, analytical, comprehension and research skills - then the social studies content is secondary.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have presented my methods and curriculum at numerous national and statewide conferences during the last several years including The American Educational Research Association (AERA), the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS), and the American Middle Level Educators (AMLE) conference and the Games + Learning + Society conference (GLS) at the University of Wisconsin Madison. In 2012 I was chosen as the American Historical Association's Beveridge Family Teaching prize winner for innovation and creativity in the teaching of history and was also named the Oregon History Teacher of the Year by Gilder Lehrman, The History Channel and Preserve America.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

A BA in Political Science and Public Administration with a minor in World Studies in 2000. I received my M.Ed in 2003.
