TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a private school Social Studies teacher with experience both in Massachusetts and Texas. I currently teach AP European History, World History II, and Modern Middle Eastern History. I have also taught Modern African History, Humanities, Spanish, and Women in History. I look forward to sharing useful and relevant products with you!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love getting kids authentically involved with the subject matter at hand. Whether that's through research and discovery, cultural exposure, or relating content to their lives and world. I hope my students will see history as a constantly developing organism rather than a static set of facts. I also aim to support my students in AP courses with materials that will help them meet the challenge of the AP program. I love seeing kids "do" history!
