TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After teaching government and economics at the high school level for two years, it was definitely eye-opening to be placed in front of middle school students. But, 16 years later, I am having a blast teaching GATE US History and World History!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I focus a GREAT DEAL on visuals. Much of the information presented in class is delivered via PowerPoint, with opportunities for students to work both individually and in groups. My US History curriculum emphasizes the interpretation of various political cartoons covering early American history. Both of my US History and World History curriculums lean heavily on projects, both group and individual.
