I am currently in my seventh year of teaching. I teach American History and Civics, and have also taught World History in the past.
I run a reading intensive classroom! Ok, I admit it...some may even say I have somewhat of an old-fashioned teaching style, but I simply believe that there is so much content in history, that direct instruction is a must. A day in the life of my class usually consists of some limited notes, some reading analysis (sometimes done publicly, sometimes individually, and sometimes collaboratively,) discussion and/or debate, and usually some sort of interactive review.
Yet to be added
I graduated from UNC Wilmington in 2012.
I spent four years in the US Marine Corps and did two combat deployments to Iraq.
