TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently in my 11th year teaching, and have spent all 11 years teaching in Virginia. Throughout my teaching career I have taught: AP World History, World History: 1500-the present (standard, team taught, and Honors), Government (standard and Honors), and Sociology.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal is to create student centered lessons that challenge students to think beyond basic historical facts. Many of my lessons often challenge students to become analytical thinkers in order to draw connections across historical time periods and/or to current events. I also strive to help students become creative and resilient thinkers.
