As an educator, my goal is to help all students achieve to their highest potential. In my history classroom, I enjoy helping students learn important skills and critical assessment of historical knowledge. I believe that the school is not a place of factoids and knowledge, but instead a place where we grow and learn as a community through critical thought and analysis of historical perspectives. It is my continuous goal to provide a safe, fun, and democratic learning space where students take an active role in their education and get to experience history in a variety of ways. The aims of my classroom are to promote thinking skills, writing, reading, civic engagement, critical analysis, responsibility, and diversity.
