American History and Consumer Economics
I have been teaching for 13 years now, working as a middle school and high school social studies and business teacher. I have taught in central Illinois, the Chicago suburbs, and for the US Army in the Marshall Islands. I am certified in social science and career/technical education. I have a BA in history, a Masters in instructional technology, and am working on my MA in history.
I decided to become a teacher because I wanted to help young people connect to the past and understand that history impacts our present. One cannot understand the world today without understanding what came before.
