TEACHING EXPERIENCE

- Charleston County School District (1 year) (2017-present) - Achievement First Charter Network (6 years) (2011-2017) - Charlotte-Mecklenburg County School District (2 years) (2009-2011)

MY TEACHING STYLE

I've taught AP-level, regular, and remedial history courses for ten years. I've taught sections of AP World History AP Goverment and Politics, and I currently teach U.S. History and Constitution for Charleston County Schools. Regardless of whether I'm teaching students at an AP-level or at a remedial level, primary source documents and rigorous debatable historical questions are ALWAYS at the heart of my lessons. I always gives students time to grapple with these documents and questions with each other before I step in to clarify existing conclusions made by historians.
