TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I served as adjunct faculty at a school for at-risk high school age youth for the first two years of my career. The next four years consisted of high school teaching at Seattle's premier public high school - Garfield. During my time at Garfield, I taught Advanced Placement courses and honors courses as well as one course in which students held debates about Current Events. After leaving my post at Garfield, I spent four years teaching United States History and World Geography to middle school age students in two different schools. I have now chosen to leave teaching and start a career in publishing curriculum in the hope that I can contribute meaningfully to the work of my colleagues as the rigors of the job continue to mount.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Children can handle and should be exposed to complex text. I devoted a good deal of time in my classes to instruction about accessing complex text. My role as teacher is to facilitate thinking and independent inquiry. I draw on the pedagogy of professional historians and educators alike. If we provide students access to text of any kind, we should provide them with the tools to successfully add its contents to their repertoire. With this in mind, it is my mission to provide high quality activities and units that engage students in authentic historical inquiry and research.
