I am currently working on my second degree from Towson University. The first is a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science. I will complete my Master of Arts in Teaching with a focus on social science next May. When I graduate, I will teach high school history, civics, government, and geography. In the meantime, I am a substitute teacher for high school and middle school students. History and politics are my favorite subjects to teach, and I am an excellent writer. Essays, short stories, and research papers have always been a strength of mine. Throughout college, my peers sought me out for writing advice, and I often obliged them by editing their work. I volunteer to teach basic reading skills to the adult illiterate population in Baltimore, at the Greater Homewood Community Corporation, once a week. As an avid reader myself, I know how much reading can enhance one's quality of life. I am a firm believer in differentiated instruction. Not all students learn the same way. I tutor/teach students in the way that best suits their learning styles. I welcome the opportunity to teach audio, visual, or kinesthetic learners. Although history is my strength, "teaching" is my real passion. After teaching, sports are my second favorite hobby. My playing days are mostly behind me, but I’m still a huge baseball, basketball, and football fan.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Connect the history to the student. Make it about them and not about some old dude in a textbook. Students need to see themselves in their studies.
