TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a veteran middle school teacher of 10 years in a large urban school district near Washington, DC. I love US History, RELA, kinesthetic lessons, and lessons that showcase student creativity while still meeting or exceeding the standards.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Discussion based, document-based SS learning, historical thinking, interdisciplinary connections between SS, Science, and RELA.
