TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Six years of teaching U.S. History, Economics and Government at a suburban public high school near Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to use a mix of current events, Power Point lectures, group work, simulations, and readings from magazines and books in my economics and government courses. Lots of research goes into each lecture so that I can give the students interesting information, convey it in a way to which they can relate, and focus my attention on the class instead of the activity when I teach.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm honored to be entrusted with the education of the students in my classes.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

University of Wisconsin, Madison: BS: Education, Broad Field Social Studies Cardinal Stritch University, Milwaukee: MA: History
