TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I will be starting my 13th year of teaching at the middle school level this fall. I have taught both American History and World History.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I really enjoy teaching using the History Alive! style of lessons. I love to get the students involved in making meaning out of history and relating it to their own lives as well as the current events taking place in the news today.
