TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I currently teach World History and U.S. History at a public high school in Reno, NV. I have over 10 years of teaching experience in many subject areas including Geography, US History, Psychology, and World History followed by writing a literacy rich curriculum for a small private school, and writing and piloting a 9th grade college prep curriculum. In my mind, social studies and literacy are a beautiful married couple. :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

Relationships, Relevancy, Rigor. "they don't care what you know until they know that you care" I build strong relationships first. Then, I keep them on their toes. We build strong procedures and routines as a group while continually keeping them guessing about what's next. Will it be notes? Will it be a project? Will we color? Will it be a timeline? Will we visit stations? Will we write an essay? Will we create a music video? We keep it fun because learning should be fun!
