TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Thirds year Social Studies teacher. Geography teacher of 2 years in a Title One All Boys Middle School. Now teaching Pop Culture and Politics at in High School!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love teaching my students how to read an write independently within our content. I love utilizing graphic organizers and guided questions to get them thinking critically about the content at hand. When we aren't explicitly practicing our reading skills, we are getting up on our feet and moving to learn the content. No one should be on their feet all day, especially Middle School-ers!
