TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Teaching middle school since 2006.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is interactive, theatrical, and fun! I love history and want my students to love history too. I've started putting some fun stuff on a YouTube Channel for the kids to use at home as a resource. If you use some of my powerpoint slides, the notes may be available to kids on YouTube! (I find that this works well for students that miss class, are frequently absent, refuse to take notes, lose their notes, have low test and quiz scores, etc.) Feel free to use those videos as well. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC-LynJUkL2l_J2wfMkdLMg
