TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 11 years. I have had the privilege to teach 7th grade American History for all of the 11 years. I have also taught 8th grade World Geography. I have recently taught High School U.S. History and AP Psychology.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to use a variety of styles in teaching. I find the students appreciate the subject when they become a part of the lesson. I use a lot of hands-on activities in my classroom. I have successfully used Layered Curriculum throughout the last few years in a private school setting.
