My teaching style centers around PowerPoint presentations that include minimal wording with a variety of images. I like to provide students with visual aides that supplement the lecture - I don't bombard them with slides that contain multiple paragraphs. You will consistently find historical photographs, graphs, charts, primary source documents (such as propaganda, political cartoons, etc.), and links to short videos in my presentations. I even include memes as a way to introduce or close different topics. I use the images as a way to try and engage students in discussion or debate throughout the lecture. I also provided my students with guided notes as a way to introduce them to note taking (the plan being to have them start taking notes on their own after they are better able to gauge what is essential information).

I graduated with a BA in History from Truman State University and then completed their Masters in Education program the following year.
I have studied abroad in the Middle East, where I was lucky enough to visit Egypt, Jordan, Israel and the West Bank. These experiences provided me with excellent insight into some of today's hottest issues. Additionally, I was given a unique perspective on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict because of the time I spent in the West Bank. I completed my student teaching on an American military base in Vilseck, Germany in the Spring of 2014. This fantastic experience gave me the opportunity to travel to many cities and historical sites throughout Europe.
