TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been an educator for 18-years. My teaching experience extends from teaching social studies to middle school, high school students and into university, where I taught a methods course to prospective teachers involving how to teach social studies to middle/high school students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In my classroom, I attempt to create the conditions for my students to become critically engaged with the topic at hand. I utilize a variety of resources, primary materials, & teaching methods in aims of inviting students to become participants. I prompt students to use their imagination, expose them to a series of different perspectives and layers of narratives that have shaped how history is presented or is not presented. It is through this critical lens that students begin to see the ‘politics” of history, and it is at this point, their approach to history as passive consumers of knowledge transcends into a critical one.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT
