TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been a high school social studies teacher in East Orange since 2007. In that time, I've taught the gamut of high school courses - World History, Early U.S. History, Modern U.S. History, and AP Government. I've participated in several curriculum writing committees and written assessments for my department. I also worked at C-SPAN as a Teacher Fellow and a Senior Fellow.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is one in which the onus is on the students to do the work that produces their learning. While I'm comfortable talking in front of a group for hours on end, I know that that doesn't really help students learn. I prefer to create independent or group assignments that make students read, write, and problem solve. I prefer to do this with technology, and I have at times had the luxury of teaching in a computer lab. Usually my classes involve a mix of mini-lectures, reading and writing, and summative projects. I'm also a huge fan of current events, and I try to incorporate them on a regular basis in my class. I love using CNN 10 to teach current events and I will happily make time for it in my classroom.

I studied at Rutgers University, where I earned a BA in Political Science and an EdM in Social Studies Education. I returned to Rutgers to pursue an EdD in Social Studies Education, but I stopped work on my doctorate and I'm currently ABD.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a passionate advocate for civics education and I write a blog on the topic, The Civic Educator. There, I share resources and methods for civics teachers and I also explore policies that can help us improve civics education.
