I have been teaching high school social studies for a total of five years. This is my fourth year teaching APUSH.
I emphasize student-centered learning in my classroom where responsibility is placed on the students to take the initiative and meet the demands of various learning tasks. I attempt to design creative and inspiring group activities which necessitate active learning, student-to-student collaboration and problem solving.
2014 EDHS Faculty of the Week
I have a BA in History from Oregon State University; a BA in Education from Oregon State University and am currently completing my MA in American History.
I love showing students that history is still relevant and worth learning, no matter how long ago an event occurred. Inspiring a love of life-long learning is one of my primary teaching objectives!
