The upcoming 2016-2017 school year will be my 8th teaching high school Social Studies on the south side of Chicago!
I believe that students need to feel comfortable to make mistakes in order to learn. I try to set my classroom up so students are comfortable sharing ideas and debating while ultimately improving their critical thinking skills.
