I've taught every grade from 7th-12th. I started my teaching career in New York City, before moving back to my hometown of Minneapolis, where I've been living and teaching for the last five years. I've worked on published curriculum development projects with professors at New York University, and SUNY New Paltz. I've also presented at a number of workshops and conferences, including the National Council for the Social Studies Annual Conference, and the Minnesota Association of IB Schools.
I believe that social studies is essential for our students. Social studies teaches the critical thinking skills necessary for them to be life long learners. To that end, I believe in a constructivist approach to education that pushes students to build their own knowledge and historical thinking skills.
