TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Seven years experience teaching ninth through twelfth graders such classes as Advanced Placement world history, world history, American history, global studies, American government, and economics (including honors level versions of nearly all of those classes); also certified to teach English.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Always do one's utmost to teach so as to make history come alive for students with creative, engaging, and unforgettable lessons! Teach history as best as our preeminent scholars can currently know and interpret it (preferably as accurately, as poignantly, and as dramatically as possible to children of all ages as soon as they can comprehend it). Historical truths may not always be glamorous, flattering to our nation's image/ideals, or politically correct — but the truth often really is stranger than fiction (and is certainly much more interesting and exciting to teach and learn).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am happily married to my awesome wife Diana and we live in Orlando, Florida with our four pets: a Labrador/Pointer mix (“Maia”), and three cats: “Sophie” (a calico/tortoiseshell), “Dexter” (an orange-tabby), and “Freya” (gray). In my spare time, I enjoy many different types of literature, music, movies, table-top role-playing games, strategy games, sailing, swimming, skiing, traveling, concerts, jazz-clubs, poetry-slams, philosophical symposia, stand-up comedy shows, theater, opera, karaoke, Medieval/Renaissance reenacting, amateur fencing, woodworking, drawing/painting, etc. I'm constantly exploring new hobbies and looking for intellectual stimulation.
