Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
In addition to leading an educational learning trip to Cuba, I bring a strong academic background to my role as an educator. I hold a BA in Political Science with a concentration in Comparative Politics, which involved extensive coursework in political and historical studies of diverse civilizations throughout history. Furthermore, I hold a Masters of Education in Secondary Social Sciences, specializing in subjects such as history and political science.

I am a certified social sciences teacher for grades 7-12 in the state of Alabama, which reflects my professional qualifications and expertise in teaching these subjects. With over three years of experience teaching world history and conducting extensive research on global history and politics for the past 20 years, I am well-equipped to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of world history and its intricate political dynamics.

The study of the Cuban Revolution delves into historically sensitive topics, including war, slavery, mass executions, mass imprisonments, widespread theft, and exile. These subjects require careful handling and consideration when presenting them to learners.

As an educator, I am committed to presenting this content in an age-appropriate manner and providing proper context. I strive to create a learning environment that fosters understanding and critical thinking while respecting the sensitivity of the topics discussed. By approaching these subjects with sensitivity and thoughtfulness, learners can engage with the material in a meaningful and responsible way.
