TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching middle school and high school social studies since the beginning of the millennium (2000). I have taught courses in American History, Economics, Psychology, Government, Ancient World History, Western Civilization, and more.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student engagement. High-quality content. Hands-on activities. Diversified learning. Group collaboration.....This is the goal, but ultimately I desire to make learning fun for my students while helping them become rooted in truth, growing in freedom, and prospering in life!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year - 2009-2010

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am a fourth generation teacher. My Great-Grandfather taught in a one room school house making $35/month. My Grandmother started in a one room school house then outgrew that to become a lifelong teacher (I even had her as my 3rd grade teacher). Both of my parents were career teachers and now I get to teach another generation of students. I have a degree in History with a licensure in Social Studies Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

From the rural plains of Minnesota, I get to teach in the school I grew up going to. I love to learn and teach!
