I have been teaching in a suburban high school for nearly a decade. While I have taught all levels (standard, honors and Advanced Placement) my primary focus is AP US History.
I would classify my style as high energy and dynamic. In history there is so much content to cover, not a moment can be wasted and every second counts. I tell my students to suck the marrow out of every second of class time, for every discussion, dialogue and exchange are valuable in understanding history and making it relevant.
I am a College Board grader for the AP US History exam and have been hired by Pearson to write test questions.
I graduated from Emory University with a Bachelor's degree in History and a minor in Classical studies. I earned my Master's of Science in Secondary Education with a specialization in Social Studies from the University of Tennessee.
I am currently living in Winter Park, Florida with my husband, Jeremiah, of ten years and two young children, Stella and Harrison.
