I have taught all grades from 6th to 11th. This includes the subjects of World Cultures, Texas History, US History, Geography and World History. I have also taught a Social Studies Methods class at a university. Currently I am working as a consultant helping Social Studies teachers improve their instruction.
I live and breathe Social Studies instruction. I have taught Social Studies to either students or teachers for over 22 years. I started out as a classroom teacher teaching both 7th grade Texas History and 8th grade US History. In 2006, I transitioned out of the classroom into the role of an Instructional Coach on a high school for a Social Studies department. Four years later I accepted the position as a Social Studies Coordinator for a school district in Texas. In addition to working with teachers in a school district, I teach a Methods of Teaching Social Studies class at the university level. I now travel the United States, training teachers in Social Studies methodology and sharing great ideas for Social Studies instruction.
