TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have had teaching experience in public, charter, and private schools. I began my teaching career teaching AP US History and Psychology in a public high school in Maryland. I then relocated to rural North Carolina where I took a position teaching 7th Grade 20th Century History and Show Choir at KIPP Gaston College Preparatory. After a year in 7th grade, I looped with my students to 8th grade where I remained for the next three years teaching Political Science and AP US Government and Politics. Additionally, I served at the Community Leader for Middle School Social Studies for the 120+ schools in the KIPP network. While at KIPP, I wrote the middle school social studies curriculum for the entire middle school, lead professional development for social studies teachers, and spent time observing and giving feedback to other teachers. Recently, I relocated to Durham, NC where I currently teach at the Duke School teaching 7th Grade Social Studies.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I "teach like my hair is on fire!" I LOVE teaching social studies and I strive to differentiate instruction to teach to multiple learning styles. I love incorporating media, plays, simulations, hands-on, projects, and all different things into my teaching. It is my goal to make social studies come alive as well as be applicable to my students.
