TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a public school teacher for 13 wonderful years! My content area is social studies, where I have taught mainly U.S History, AP Human Geography and World History. My lessons are created for the advanced learner, as I teach mainly Honors and AP students. However, the lessons can be modified for any learning group, and I hope you and your students enjoy the material. I have many great lessons and projects I can't wait to share with you!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Lessons modeled for independent learning, and some small group. Module lessons can be used for both.
