I have over 10 years of middle school experience. I was a middle school social studies teacher for 8 years, and have also served as a dean of students, a PBIS coordinator/coach, and an instructional specialist. I am currently an Assistant Principal of Instruction working with all middle grades and contents.
I love hands on teaching that gets the students directly involved with their learning! History is not a subject that should be boring but should captivate the curiosity and interest of students. Everything I do as a history teacher works to fulfil this mission!
