Nearly a decade of experience teaching grades 7-10 in some of the most highly rated public schools in America
I believe that students should be thinking critically every single day. My classes are centered on essential questions, enduring understandings, and overarching historical themes. I like to tell my students that it makes me happy when they leave the room with their brains hurting just a little bit. I try to change things up on a daily basis, mixing in a wide range of experiential learning tasks such as debates, simulations, and Socratic seminars to complement more traditional lessons based on content acquisition and skill building.
