TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Once Upon a Time, I graduated the Command & General Staff school of the Army War College and taught deploying headquarters units how to evaluate areas and develop courses of action to restore ruined provinces. I then used the GI Bill to finish the master's degree and began catching them younger - teaching teens how to evaluate people and the strange things they do. What motivates people? How does geography or society or upbringing shape our lives and countries? Since 2011, I've been teaching in high school and then middle school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Once the basic groundwork of a knowledge base is laid, we are then free to have discussions about the "why" and "how" of social, economic and political forces, and how people's environments and eras shape their decisions.
