  • Students will learn about the many attempts throughout history to fly and what made the Wright Brothers so different. We will learn about the Wright Brothers and their sister Katherine, the impact of air travel, and how planes have changed since their first glider at Kitty Hawk. Our goals for this class are to: Write about what we learn. Use primary sources and different types of media (such as film and art) to learn about historical events. Learn about historical events through the context of geography and how it affected different events. Research, organize, and present their research on various topics, events, and figures. Discuss topics while focusing on using specific details, facts, and reasons to support their opinions. Use technology to research both past and current events and topics.
I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions.  I have a passion for history, organization, reading, and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary.

I am also an Outschool ACE Educator, which means that I continually seek out ways to improve my teaching skills and knowledge, as well as the learner experience. Some of the seminars/courses that I have attended in the past are: Foundations for Teaching and Learning About Native Americans; The Presence and Absence of Asian America: What Truths Lie Beyond the Headlines; Using the “Diary of Anne Frank” to Amplify Students’ Voices; Painting a Just Picture – Art and Activism.
