Hello and welcome to my classroom website! I'm so glad you stopped by and I hope you find the information and resources helpful. But first, perhaps you would like a little about the teacher.
I teach AP World History and Economics. I have been teaching at Cedar since 2010 and each year has presented new challenges and opportunities. I love my job, my students, and my school and I hope that is evident in my teaching style and approaches to learning.
I am a strong proponent of promoting diverse perspectives in my classroom. My many travels abroad, including living in Japan for two years, have imparted to me the importance of multicultural education and I seek to incorporate these experiences into my curriculum. I am passionate about pedagogy and I enjoy working with young minds each day!
I am a firm believer that students of every skill level deserve a challenging academic experience. I emphasize critical thinking skills and I seek active student engagement in the classroom. I hope that my students leave my classroom as stronger readers, writers, and thinking critically about the world around them. I also hope that my students become lifelong learners who strive for self-improvement throughout their lives.
Please let me know how I can help your child be more successful in my classroom.
One of my great joys is photography. I've been an amateur photographer since I was in high school and I have a passion for capturing the world. Below you can see a small sample of some of my photographs.
