8 years classroom experience teaching U.S. and World History at the middle school level. I have also been a contributor to several online study resource sites such as eNotes.com. I have also developed game-based curriculum for several educational groups and have helped design curriculum for teachers across the state of California. I am also a trainer for CUE California and have presented technology-enhanced curriculum ideas at several conferences throughout the SF Bay Area.
I utilize many different approaches to make sure my lessons are engaging. I am a huge proponent of game-based learning and frequently include aspects of this approach in my lessons. I also use the project-based learning model in my classroom, augmented by technology. Many of my assignments are based around this approach.
2014 Outstanding District Teacher. Chosen to pilot the first 1:1 classroom in district history.
