Current Social Studies Teacher (Economics and Personal Finance, American History, APUSH, World Geography, and American Government)
I find that in promoting an education that strives to provide students with an equal opportunity to succeed, my mission as an educator is three-fold: (1) Diversify and integrate an interdisciplinary approach to the subject at hand to impart a more relevant education and demonstrate differentiated learning. (2) Encourage communication and discussion within the confines of the classroom in efforts of fostering a safe and interactive space. (3)Promote a critical education in which students have the ability to both analyze and synthesize the subject matter at hand.
