TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching Social Studies at the secondary level since 2012.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to teach using project based learning. I believe that "creation" forces students to use higher level learning skills. When a student can understand something and then CREATE, I know I have done my job.
