TEACHING EXPERIENCE

A Social Studies Life creates resources, lessons, and activities for Social Studies, History, ELA and Literacy.

I have taught some pretty AMAZING students of history: 7th grade American History, 8th grade American History, 9th grade World History, 10th grade World History, 11th grade American History, 12th grade Government, and 12th grade Elective Psychology! I continue to teach students who learn at home on my own time.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Every day is different! I believe in a constructivist approach to learning. I believe in and create student-centered, activity-based, and cooperative learning activities. I LOVE to create station/museum walk activities.
