I am a licensed and qualified history teacher with over 15 years of classroom teaching experience.  I have had numerous proffesional development courses and continued education classes that focus on the cultural and demographic changes that occurred in both North and South America with the influx of European people (Christopher Columbus and European Exploration).  I continue to educate myself on these eventsl I also have friends that have shared their own family stories  concerning the changes in Cuba in the 1900s.

This class teaches about the modern nation and history of Cuba. Several times in history Cuba has been the place of slavery, occupation, and wars. It is impossible to discuss the history of Cuba without discussing these issues. While I do not go into details of the negative impacts of the arrival of Europeans onto the island of Cuba and neighboring islands in my planned lesson, it may be discussed organically in the classroom. I will answer honestly, with age-appropriate resposes to student questions. The focus of this lesson is the political changes that have occurred over time. 

All learners are asked to be respectful of each other and their views throughout the lesson. The goal of history is to learn when people chose to do what’s right and when negative choices impacted others.  These events will not be sensationalized in the classroom, but the information will be as unbiased as possible.

About Me

I believe that students need to see the personal side of the world. When students begin to see a unique story in a history or science lesson, they become engaged and learn. 

 I speak French and love to travel to countries where I can immerse...
