TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am entering my third year of teaching at Penta Career Center, an incredible Career Tech school in Perrysburg, Ohio. At Penta, I teach High School American History & Psychology. Before teaching at Penta, I also have taught American history survey courses at Michigan State University as a Grad Assistant in the History Department.

MY TEACHING STYLE

HardCORE! I teach with an emphasis on integrating Common Core and research-based practices into the study of History. After all, this is what historians do! I never just give students answers to memorize; I want my students to engage with the process of thinking historically and finding comprehensive answers to complex historical questions. All of my products demonstrate my intense drive to really get students involved in the practices of real historians.
