TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For more than 25 years, I have brought my love of Social Studies to teachers and students. My journey includes a variety of roles – classroom teacher, instructional coach, curriculum coordinator, university professor, and professional development trainer. Working with middle school students has been one of the highlights of my career. After thirteen years in the classroom, I transitioned into the role of an instructional coach based on a high school campus. This window into other teachers’ classrooms motivated my inner calling to improve social studies instruction. I realized how important front line education is to changing the way students react to and learn from the important life lessons Socials Studies has to share. My next step was to central office. I served a district of over 55,000 students as a Social Studies Coordinator. My goal of improving Social Studies instruction increased as I worked with over 600 K-12 Social Studies teachers to implement transformative Social Studies education. In my current role,  I provide professional development, consulting services and resources to Social Studies teachers. I want every child to understand the importance of Social Studies in their life – and every teacher to have the tools to reach them.

MY TEACHING STYLE

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.
