Hi there! I have six years of teaching experience in high school social studies. I've taught American History, World History, Civics, AP Government, Global Geography, Sociology, Psychology, and AVID.
I love teaching AND creating engaging student-centered learning activities like stations, gallery walks, jigsaws, and Genius Hour! In my work and lesson plans, you will find I love to challenge students to think critically, engage with history, and make connections to the present.
I've was fortunate to receive the recognition of Beginning Teacher of the Year for my school district!
B.A. in History -- M.A.T. in Social Studies -- Secondary Social Studies Licensure
I love reading, listening to podcasts, and running. It's usually when I'm engaged in those activities that I have ideas for new lesson plans!
