I have taught high school psychology, current events & film production, AP Government, 6th grade Minnesota Studies, and 7th Grade US Studies. During the summer of 2014, I also spent six weeks teaching English in Japan as part of the Guy Healy Program and absolutely loved it!
My teaching style is reflective of the constructivist pedagogical theory. My lessons are all centered around students actively investigating, questioning, and synthesizing primary sources and materials. In my class, students are always thinking, wondering, reflecting, and doing!
Yet to be added
I have a Bachelors of Science in Broad Field Social Studies - History Emphasis with a minor in Spanish from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls.
Being from Minnesota, I love the outdoors! You'll often find me out playing tennis, biking, on runs, backpacking in the woods, and of course playing hockey on our frozen ponds! Naturally, I am an avid reader and book collector, and enjoy combing through my shelves for stories and situations from history to bring into the classroom.
