TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Was a middle school teacher for 14 years (8th grade math, 8th grade U.S. history, and 6th grade social studies). This year I am taking the year "off" to write teacher resources.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I went to New Trier High School and attended college and graduate school at Lewis and Clark College.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

After receiving positive comments on original U.S. history plays I posted here, I worked to get a book published. The series is titled "Acting History." This year I'm working on a very different set of teacher resources. Each book focuses on one historical era and consists of nine assignments that cover all of the social studies Common Core Standards. The series is titled "Applying Common Core."
