    Teaching Experience

    After teaching Government and Economics at the high school level, it was certainly eye-opening to be placed in front of middle school students.  17 years later, however, I am having a blast teaching 8th grade US History and 7th grade World History.

    Teaching Style

    For me, the formula for delivering an effective lesson is simple: tell a good story.  History is rife with abstract concepts – so incorporate visuals, actively involve them in each lesson, challenge them to think critically, and – above all – make it relevant.  Allow students to demonstrate their understanding through a variety of methods: writing an essay, illustrating the Bill of Rights or designing their own political cartoon on Andrew Jackson, creating a journal of the Oregon Trail, singing the Preamble to the Constitution (Schoolhouse Rock is awesome!).
