TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught high school psychology, current events and film production, AP Government, 5th Grade Early American Studies, 6th grade Minnesota Studies, 7th Grade US Studies, and 9th Grade Civics. 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! Currently, I spend my summers working as an interpreter at a 19th century historic site.

MY TEACHING STYLE

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!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

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.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

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.
