I have over ten years of teaching experience. I have taught, and still teach, social studies classes at the secondary level in both the general and special education settings. I also volunteered to teach Greek on Saturday mornings.
I'll try anything, but I am drawn to inquiry-based learning along with brain-based learning.
Being a teacher! I wish the profession was more respected.
Bachelor's Degree: Majored in history with a teaching certificate. Master's Degree: Majored in education with focus on special education. +56 additional graduate level credit hours: Classes divided between special education and history classes.
I'm from a small Greek island, but I live far away in the American Midwest. Ever since my college days, I have an unexplainable obsession with the history of the Balkans. Oh, and I read Greek newspapers! I have an insatiable desire for details, but the drive to make complex historical phenomena accessible to all students. I have scoured over archives and have published in a scholarly Balkan journal, all the while breaking down what the basic concept of government means to students with significant delays.
