I have spent 7 years as a teacher of Social Studies and Religion for 6th, 7th and 8th grade at a private Catholic school in Oregon. My courses include a special emphasis on: - US History - Current Events - History of the Catholic Church - Old and New Testament Studies. I have also developed an elective course on the Persian Gulf War for my Middle School students.
- Notes / Powerpoint presentations - Class Discussion - Small Group Activities - I develop my own tests and study guides, using a variety of resources. My goal is to develop content that is engaging to students with different learning styles.

While at University of Portland, I was able to participate in a yearlong study abroad program in Austria. This allowed me to travel extensively through Europe and develop a true appreciation of other cultures. I enjoy helping students understand the impact that history has on our lives today, as well as to recognize that each person's ideas can have a huge impact on society as a whole.
