I have been teaching Social Studies courses for the past 9 years at the high school level. I teach Government, AP Government, and U.S. History, but I have also taught Economics in the past. I have also been a Mock Trial advisor for the past 6 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in History and Political Science, as well as a Clear CA Secondary Social Science Teaching Credential. I have had an overall 98% passing rate in my AP Government class and love to see my students succeed!
I implement a variety of teaching strategies in my classroom. I use a combination of lecture and hands-on strategies. My students work individually and in groups, take notes and do collaborative projects, listen, but also discuss. I believe in mixing it up in the classroom and reaching a variety of learners.
Yet to be added
I have a BA in History and Political Science, as well as a clear California Secondary Teaching Credential in Social Sciences. I also have a Master's degree in Educational Counseling and a PPS Counseling Credential.
In addition to teaching, I have a great passion for helping students with college and career exploration. I have also developed a great passion for photography and traveling. I have opened up a custom category specifically for stock photos and background images in my store. I am featuring images of countries and landmarks around the world, as well as other images teachers may find useful in their classroom, such as nature, transportation, and school themed photos. Photos may be used for BOTH personal and commercial uses, so sellers are free to incorporate them into their products! *Logo and banner design done by A Little Peace of Africa http://peaceofafrica.com http://www.pinterest.com/lainesutherland facebook.com/alittlepeaceofafrica
