TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching for 24 years, 16 of those in 5th grade. I have an obsession with American History and spend many hours researching primary sources.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style is very interactive and hands on. Students use technology frequently to research topics in history. My class is filled with literature and I often tie in social studies to historical fiction.
