I have been teaching high school in New Jersey for eight years. I currently teach Modern World History and AP Psychology. I have had the privilege of starting, and therefore getting to design, our psychology classes at the high school. I have also taught SUPA Human Behavior, Introduction to Psychology, USI, USII, Sociology, and Contemporary Issues.
I'm very energetic in the classroom and can often be found standing on chairs or tables with animated gesturing to make sure everyone is into a lesson. I like to make my classes as interactive as possible, I don't use history textbooks (they are a supplement in AP), and am always asking my students the why of history and psychology.
Yet to be added
I received both my bachelor's in Education and History and my MA in Applied Developmental and Educational Psychology from Boston College. I got my second MA in Forensic Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. I am currently working towards a graduate certificate in Holocaust Studies.
I am a huge Winston Churchill and Sigmund Freud fan - super strange combination, but it keeps me and my students amused. You can follow my class on Instagram @room20adventures
