I have a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and a Minor in English Literature from the University of California at San Diego. 
For the past 20 years I have been teaching children both as a homeschool teacher and in local co-op classes. I have also been teaching children online for the past 2.5 years with VIPKid and on Outschool.
As we discuss sensitive topics and issues, we will analyze the historical context in which novels were written, the author's background and worldview, and the story's time period. Discussion is focused on what the characters believe, what the author believed, and what beliefs were central to the literary time period. Students' various ideas and opinions are always respected.
