I have taught both middle school (social studies) and elementary school classes. My experience has been in urban charter schools and parochial schools.
In my classroom, I teach thematically, tying all of the content areas together. I use a project based learning model, coupled with cooperative learning.

I am originally from Maryland, but moved to St. Louis, Missouri in 2002. I live in a wonderful neighborhood in the city of St. Louis with my husband, cat and guinea pig. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy cooking, reading, writing, drawing, video games, swimming, hiking and Civil War living history.
