TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Tapp Middle School Teacher (2013-present) Hall County Substitute (2012-2013) Georgia Gwinnett College Part Time Faculty (2011-2013)

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe students need to experience information to learn it. When I taught college, I had my students conduct interviews and analyze material culture. When I teach middle school, I have my students in a flipped-classroom setting that allows for research projects & the creation/play of serious games.
