I love teaching middle school! I currently teach 8th grade U.S. history from the founding of the colonies to reconstruction.
I love cooperative learning opportunities, projects, skill building, and student individual investigation. I often move away from the textbook and add perspectives that the students don't always get to hear. My goal is to make history applicable today, so I often include technology and comparisons to current events.
Yet to be added
I am a graduate of Michigan State University in Education and Policy.
I am originally from the U.P. of Michigan, but now live below the bridge with my husband. When I'm not teaching, I love being outdoors, traveling, biking, reading, and playing tennis.
