TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After receiving my masters degree, I taught sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students at a school for Gifted Education in Charlottesville, VA. I taught American History and Government. I am now teaching World History to seventh graders at a charter school in Raleigh, NC.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that teaching is more than merely imparting content knowledge, it is empowering students to achieve beyond what they thought was possible. It is my goal to ensure that students experience Social Studies in a new light. Traditionally, the discipline has focused on rote memorization of dates and facts with little room for creativity, interpretation, and personal relevance. I have created a curriculum that is engaging, relevant, and appropriately challenging by showing students how historical events relate to their lives today; how history is illusive and open for interpretation; how multiple perspectives can offer new meanings and understandings; and how we can grow and learn from the events and people from our past. . I believe that the best way to learn is through experience, so I like to have an “active” and student-centered approach in the classroom, one where students direct their own learning and spend less time listening to lectures. Students learn through collaborative activities such as participating in simulations, engaging in debates and Socratic seminars, analyzing artwork and primary resources, conducting historical trials, and role-playing.
