TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my nineteenth year in the classroom. I have taught United States History, World History, Government, AP United States History, AP World History, AP Government, and an elective class titled The History of Conflict Management. I received my credential and Masters in Education from University of California At Santa Barbara.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The goal is to bring it all back to what they already know. A diverse arsenal of techniques and resources to stretch the mind and provide a stable platform for growing context for the world around them and for the past. I switch activities and skills at ten minute intervals and try to involve the whole mind in the process.
