I have been a teacher for 7 years. I taught Economics, Civics, U.S. and World History throughout my classes. My focus has been on U.S. and World History over the last several years. I also have taught a remedial World History class that skims the "Got to Know" questions without going into a lot of detail.
Combination of lecture, individual, partner, and group activities. I try to incorporate a lot of reading into my lessons to give the students more reading stamina and expose them to knew readings/styles of reading. I try to include different strategies for each assignment as well. I start a lot of my mornings with a journal to get the students thinking or end with a journal to wrap up briefly the main points.

I love to teach and want my students to be engaged with a variety of different ideas. I have a wonderful dog named Marty (Because my husband and I are Back to the Future Fans)
