I have taught social studies for the last five years. Four of those five years were in an Urban Charter school and this year I am teaching in a public school. My focus has been in United States History but I have also taught World Geography. My new focus is connecting my social studies class to the students English classes and to work collaboratively with teachers on my campus!
I am a very hands off teacher. Students tend to research throughout the unit to find information to complete a project. I am in the process of moving my class to a full inquiry based classroom.
I received my BA in US History from the University of California Irvine. I went on to get my single subject teaching credential in Social Sciences from the California Sate University of Long Beach. I went onto receive my masters in Curriculum Instruction and Design from the University of Nevada Las Vegas with a focus on Multicultural Education.
