I am originally from Columbus, Ohio. After high school I decided to come out west and attend Northern Arizona University. I graduated from NAU in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in History Education. I will be going into my fifth year of teaching. I love teaching U.S. History and specifically the Cold War which involves topics such as the Red Scare, the Vietnam War, and the Civil Rights Movement. I played basketball for 16 years and have coached basketball for the past 8 years and have also coached volleyball. I look forward to being able to coach this year.
I believe in providing the best education possible for my students. I try to incorporate several different types of lessons and learning strategies that challenge students to think outside the box or push them out of their own comfort zones. I attempt to create lessons that are engaging and accommodating for all my students. I would appreciate any information about your child's learning abilities, talents, or other information that would allow me to be the best teacher possible. I believe communication between parent and teacher is vital to a child's success please feel free to reach me by email anytime.
This year students will be learning about the American Revolution, Constitution/Citizenship, World War II, Cold War, and Contemporary U.S. as well as developing Historical Research Skills throughout the year.
