TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught high school U.S. History, American Government my whole career, working with students with elementary- through college-level reading and writing capabilities. I have learned over the years that every student needs scaffolding, templates, and personal connections to be successful, which is why every resource in my store sets you up for success by including these supports.

If you have any questions about how to make them work in your middle or high school classroom, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'd be happy to help brainstorm with you!

MY TEACHING STYLE

History is not made in a textbook. It is not a matching quiz, fill-in-the-blank worksheet, 50-slide Power Point lecture. History is not a fact to be memorized.

Come join me in leaving the textbooks on the shelf and instead empowering our students to analyze problems, decide their positions, find their passions, persuade others with their words, and taking effective action for change during and after they are in our care.

We will cut out all the abstract minutia and instead ask meaningful questions to create authentic products:

- "What does it take to be an America hero?" and nominate one for this year's Presidential Media of Freedom (US History)

- "Is voting an American right, privilege, or responsibility?" and conduct a mock election (Government)

- "How can we establish an inclusive community this year?" and conduct a school-wide kindness campaign (Leadership)
