15 years as a high school history teacher. I've taught U.S. History, World History, Government, AP U.S. History, and Psychology. Spent the last three years as a Pre-College Advisor. This position was funded by a local community college and school district. I had an office at the high school and my job was to help students work towards college. I functioned as a guidance counselor to juniors and seniors. I am about to head back into the classroom as an 8th grade U.S. History teacher.
Practice Makes Permanent! I teach the basics and then use a variety of resources to enhance the lessons. I believe in making history fun and as relatable as possible.
Nominated three years in a row as teacher of the year. Served as department chairperson for ten years.
Graduate of Texas A&M - Corpus Christi with a BA in History. Grad student at Lamar University - currently studying to be a school counselor.
Married with two of my own middle schoolers. Living and loving life everyday!
