Ten years teaching 6th grade History in a fantastic school with a bit of Media Production thrown in.
I strive to creatively teach history skills with age-level appropriate strategies. I highly value cultural awareness as well as an understanding relevant of current events. Easily excitable by both student achievement and challenges, I have developed my own curriculum over the past eight years of my career, which includes writing a publishing an iBook through Apple. My course is guided by this text as I aim to enhance students' literacy skills. I'm passionate about my students and my profession and enjoy collaborating with others to improve historical education (and the related subjects).
