Over four years’ experience teaching and mentoring high school and middle school youth. Demonstrated ability to write grants, curriculum, and keep detailed records. Experience in community organizing. Highly skilled in building collaborative design processes and programs with partners.
My teaching combines popular education, global education with project-based learning and Blooms Taxonomy. I believe education should meet students where they are at, they should learn about the world they live in and be able to apply that learning. All of my work will have a basis in the real world!
