I am an educator, artist, and world historian with an avid curiosity and vibrant creativity. My 15 years of teaching at the elementary, secondary, and undergraduate levels provide me with the pedagogical acumen to help a wide range of students achieve their goals.

Since I graduated magna cum laude from Davidson College, I have sought to become an educator who empowers all students to embrace their role as global citizens. I joined Teach for America in 2005 and taught elementary Special Education and fourth grade for three years. Finding that historical questioning best taught students how to thoughtfully engage with the world around them, I went on to become a secondary humanities teacher focusing on history and teaching literacy through the social sciences. I've taught standard classes like Advanced Placement Human Geography, U.S. History, and World History as well as designed my own seminar classes like Roots of the Contemporary World and Happiness in the Twenty-First Century. Because I regularly used projects, performance tasks, and discussions, students gained more than academic skills. They cultivated the ability to discuss injustices and the drive to face the challenges of the twenty-first century analytically and empathetically.

Beyond teaching the social sciences, I practice them. I graduated with a Masters in History from Georgia State University with a concentration in world history. I have published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals including the Southern Historian and World History Bulletin, presented at academic conferences across the continental United States, collaborated with professors on undergraduate writing classes, and helped organize two regional conferences. Currently, I'm working at the Atlanta History Center as an Educational Content Creator.

Because of my passion for history and storytelling, I most look forward to advising students in social studies and writing. I'm a master at document based questions and an empathetic writing coach.
