TEACHING EXPERIENCE

12 years of teaching experience at a supportive and progressive school have helped me to create engaging resources for the social sciences!

MY TEACHING STYLE

"There is much more to a student than the person sitting in the desk in front of you." My dad, who taught for 34 years, told me this when I became a teacher. I try to remember this when I'm teaching. Positive relationships are an important component of helping students learn and develop as individuals. Furthermore, I enjoy designing curriculum that reflects differentiated learning styles and new technologies. I am always seeking to further develop the art of teaching through innovative curriculum.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Seeing students develop into caring people is reward enough!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a double major in History and Kinesiology and a minor in Political Science. In addition, I have a B.A. in Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I'm not teaching or creating resources I'm either fishing or travelling!
