I am entering my 9th year of teaching. I began teaching in the 6th grade and taught in a self contained classroom. My goal however, was to be a history teacher so I eventually moved up in to the middle school arena. I love this age group and now teaching 7, 8, and 9th graders. Before teaching I worked in the public relations and marketing field for the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization which inspired me to become a teacher! I love the path that I have followed!
As a history educator I will utilize my passion for history in an uplifting manner in order to motivate my students to become productive members of society and use their new knowledge of history to create positive change within the world they live.
