I am a 7th grade World History teacher!
I teach History as if it were drama class. I do not think the past means anything to young people, until they can live in the story. Teaching history is a gift, because it is storytelling. However, if you aren't a character in the story...its just no fun! I am a lover of experiential and acting out the stories of the past. My goal is always to make my students dangerous. I tell them on the first day of school that I want them to be so educated and so knowledgeable that they are scary. I want my students to go out into the world and be able to make arguments and stand up for what they believe in.
Yet to be added
I hold a bachelors degree in History from Sacramento State University California. My personal education goal is to keep working hard and achieve a masters degree is history (with a focus on women health, reproductive rights and birth control)
I am absolutely OBSESSED with Broadway...so if I can find a way to connect a Broadway musical to a lesson...well I'm going to figure out how to do it:)
