Class experience

US Grade 9
I have been teaching at Outschool for 3 years. I strive to teach social studies, civics, and history in a way that inspires and entertains while fostering curiosity and critical thinking. 

I love teaching and Outschool allows me to share my passions for various subjects with young minds. I've taught (as a guest) both middle, elementary, and high school social studies, government civics, technology, and history. I’ve taught at the University of Maryland and am currently an adjunct law professor at Catholic University School of Law in Washington, DC. I have also taught at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, in Brunswick, Georgia and have published in several academic legal journals and publications
