TEACHING EXPERIENCE

MashAvz strives to create academic material that is intelligent, fun and appealing to the eye. We hope that our video-based curriculums will stoke your students' intellectual curiosity and love of the arts, while also instilling in them a great respect for the world's diversity. You can visit our pages at: Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/MashAvzCommonCore Twitter: https://twitter.com/MashavzP (I taught History and Music at the high school, middle school and elementary levels for 15 years. Now I work as a home school teacher and make educational films.) I hope you enjoy!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I've had the good fortune to do lots of traveling (yay summer vacation!!) and it taught me that diversity, when enjoyed in an environment of mutual respect and appreciation, is ALWAYS a unifying, enlightening force. This lesson remains a guiding tenet in my life, one that I hope to pass on to others through my videos and worksheets.
