TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Curriculum Specialist at the English Teacher's Friend; Social Studies Educator at Heritage High School

MY TEACHING STYLE

I create very interactive lesson plans that focus on inquiry, collaboration, and indirect instruction.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

James Madison Memorial Fellowship - http://www.jamesmadison.com; Life Guard Teacher Fellowship - http://www.mountvernon.org/educational-resources/library/fellowships/teacher-fellowship

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Master of Arts in Social Science Education from the University of Central Florida; Bachelor of Arts from the University of South Carolina Honors College

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have designed lessons that have been published by such prestigious organizations as the National Park Service (NPS) and the Florida Humanities Council (FHC). I also served as a social studies representative on my school’s interdisciplinary curriculum development committee, through which I worked with teachers from multiple disciplines to create a set of interdisciplinary lesson plans that align with the Common Core State Standards. I really enjoy preparing and presenting workshops for fellow educators. I have presented such workshops as "Social Studies and English: Allies for a Common Goal," "Empower Your Students Discussion and Debate," and "James Madison and George Washington."
