I have been a Social Studies Teacher since earning my Bachelors Degree in History Education in 2007 and have since earned 3 Masters Degrees. I currently teach A.P. U.S. History and An Introduction to American Law.
Over the course of my career, I have been fortunate to experience many professional achievements. In 2019, I was named the Illinois State Teacher of the Year by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. More importantly, my students have had success. In 2019, 77 out of my 78 students took the A.P. U.S. History national exam. 67.5% of them earned a 3 or higher as compared to the global average of 53.6%. My school has 28% low-income students. I was incredibly proud of these results and am fortunate to teach very devoted kids!
Finally, I have also done much work with professional development, and because of that, I am confident that my year-long goals, unit overviews, and daily lesson plans are well-designed. In my store, you'll find products that are aligned with the long-term course objectives and summative assessments I have created for each unit that I teach, such as Power Point Presentations, student activities, and video guides. I hope you find some of my materials to be useful! Thanks for looking :)
