I have experience teaching 8th grade US History through 1877, 11th grade US History since 1877, and AP US History in Title 1 schools.
My lessons focus on creating a rigorous and relevant learning environment for students. To achieve this, my curriculum is thoroughly differentiated by readiness, interest, and learning profile so that each student can learn in their proximal zone of development.
Yet to be added
I have a Bachelors in History and a Masters in Teaching from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX.
Much of my curriculum is based on the following resources. These are research based planning templates for curriculum, lesson plans, and differentiation.
