TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have extensive coursework in the social sciences—ancient and medieval world history, civics, economics and current events. I have comprehensive knowledge about all things History and I have the ability to break difficult concepts down for students to understand complex subjects and make material more accessible for all students of all abilities and language levels by implementing activities and lessons that engage and motivate every student. I have taught: 6th, 7th, 10th and 11th Grades (All history) and have my Doctorate in Education in Curriculum Design and Urban School Leadership from USC.
