TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 8 years of experience in the middle and high school English and History classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My history curriculum is primary sources based, and student-directed. Students are presented with brief excepts of primary source writing, and asked to analyze them for meaning.
