TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an American History I and II teacher in a small rural Early College in Eastern North Carolina. I have taught all high school grades in both traditional and nontraditional schools as well as in urban and rural settings. I am always creating and looking for fun, creative, and engaging lessons to ensure my students are not passive but active learners living the history they are learning.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I do not simply teach history. I have students critically think about, analyze, and recognize patterns in American History. I teach with passion and vigor to create a spark within my students. I ensure that students are active learners and live through the eras and themes taught.
