MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is laid back and student-centered. I believe in placing the responsibility of learning on the student. As a history teacher I do enjoy giving a good lecture, from time to time. I love using stories, primary sources and hands on material to grab students' attention to assist them in understand the past.
