I have been teaching humanities based courses for the past 8 years, mainly from the classical perspective. This means in depth lectures, writing based assessments, and extensive use of primary sources for both my history and literature courses. My experience includes teaching History from the Renaissance to the War of 1812, and 20th Century, as well as Literature courses covering the Renaissance to 19th century, and a separate 20th century literature course. I have also taught Apologetics, World View, and Writing for Research.
The Socratic method is my mainstay. Discussion based lectures that draw connections between the past and the present not only allow me to demonstrate my passion for the history and literature, it engages the students by helping them to apply historical relevance to their own time period.
Yet to be added
I began my higher education at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Minnesota where I majored in English and Creative Writing. I transferred to Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina where I continued my passion for writing and graduated with a BA in History and English, and concentrations in African American History and Secondary Education.
I am a single mother of three daughters and a life long learner. I am passionate about teaching and research writing - there is little more that I love than inspiring my students to recognize how important history and literature are in terms of understanding the world we live in.
