TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm an educator with a decade of classroom experience in various grades throughout elementary and middle school. As a social studies specialist, I'm passionate about bringing history to life for students. I don't know about you, but I've found myself teaching in schools that provided few (and sometimes zero) social studies curricula or materials. It can be daunting to find high-quality social studies resources. My goal is to share engaging activities, and low-prep social studies activities including virtual field trips around the world!

MY TEACHING STYLE

• Collaborative Learning • Primary Sources • Interactive Learning • Student-Led Learning

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

• Board Member with the Washington State Council for the Social Studies • Member of Educators for Change with the Holocaust Center for Humanities in Seattle, WA • Board President of Club Las Amigas Educational Non-profit in Baja, Mexico • Teacher Leader with Ambassador Leadership Summit at Tulane University and Harvard University • Featured in podcasts, educational publications, conferences, and professional development

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended Eastern Washington University, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Education with a double major in Secondary Social Studies Education and Elementary Education, K-8. I have a minor in Communication Studies with an emphasis on Intercultural Communications. I also hold a Leadership credential from Harvard University.
