TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am beginning my 12th year of teaching Middle School social studies. I taught 9 years of 8th grade American History and 2 years of 7th grade World History. While American History is my passion, I am working hard to be creative in my World History lessons.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love cooperative learning and technology. I encourage my students to use 21st Century skills and I am also trying to learn new things as well. I'm always looking for fun assignments and acitivities to keep my students motivated and interested.
