I first started teaching 3rd grade in 2004 in Florida. In 2006 I began teaching American 2nd grader in Japan with a U.S. Curriculum. In 2011 I transferred to Europe where I taught American first grade for one year. After which, in 2012, we transferred within Europe, and I continued teaching an American curriculum, but in high school social studies high school German. I've taught a variety of social studies courses since 2012, to include: Law, Government, World History, Economics, Psychology and Sociology.
I believe in using a lot of visuals: video, photographs, artwork, etc. to help students understand what would otherwise be abstract concepts.
