TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This year will mark my seventh year as a teacher and dedicated educator. I have experience teaching Global History I & Global History II, AP World History, and Art History.

MY TEACHING STYLE

If you ever want someone to truly listen to what you have to say, then you need to show that what you are saying is relevant to their lives. This is the approach I take when teaching students about history. Students often ask why they should care about a bunch of dead old people, and I hope to show them that history is something that I evident in all of our lives. Even though history has its roots in the past, its branches reach out to the future. Each lesson I design is constructed in a manner that immerses students into the very relevant and fun world of history.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT
