TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am working to build a collection of * Middle School Social Studies Resources * Geography Resource Books that include maps and activities * Common Core Resources for the Primary and Intermediate Grades I have been teaching in 6-8th middle school environment since 1997. I teach World Studies and US History with a heavy emphasis on constitutional government and civil rights, mixed with technology, and seasoned with geography, economics, and social justice. For more information on my teaching, please visit http://middleschoolmoodler.wordpress.com/

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer activities that have the students really working hard whether it be to acquire new knowledge or assimilate that knowledge in creating new technological content.
