I have taught in both private and public sectors of Education for the past nine years. I have served numerous roles over those years including mentoring new teachers and grooming teachers to be. Experience: Lutheran South Academy (2003-2009) Taught 6th, 7th, 8th grade Social Studies [Geography, TX History, US History]; Melillo Middle School (2009-2010) Taught 6th grade Geography; Dobie High School (2010-Present) Have taught or am Teaching, Geography, World History, US History, Government and I am currently teaching in the Summit Learning method (which we call Connect in our district) and if you ever have the opportunity to teach in this method do it. It will challenge you in a whole new way.
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.

I have lots of kids. 6 to be exact and we are fostering one currently. We just adopted one of our foster babies and will see what happens with the other one. I also coach soccer.
