TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 13 years of experience teaching all levels of social studies in diverse schools across all income levels in New Jersey, Florida, and Northern Virginia. For most of those years, I've taught both World and US History, however I also have experience teaching AP Human Geography, Government, Economics, and a class called "The American Mosaic" on American culture. I've also been a School Testing Coordinator and focused on ways to make the testing experience more positive for the school community.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I know how hard it is to engage a modern, diverse classroom full of students at low reading levels, English language learners, advanced students, and students with special needs. That's helped me to learn to create dynamic lessons that students enjoy, while covering state and national standards that utilizes critical thinking.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've had lessons published by the Society for Historians of Foreign Wars (SHAFR), the Gilder Lehrman Institute, and on our county-wide teacher resource network. Also, I have been selected to lead multiple county-wide teacher development courses and in-services.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA in History & Writing from the University of Tampa MA in Educational Leadership from George Mason University
