Class Experience

Labor history is a passion of mine. I promise that it is far from boring... it is fascinating! I completed graduate work on North Carolina mill towns and continue to learn more about this subject. I'm excited to share this topic with my students!

I have taught a variety of social studies courses in both the traditional classroom and online environment for over 13 years. I love making history come to life through first hand accounts, images and stories. While my background is in middle and high school education, I have worked with younger (and older) learners as well. As a homeschooling mom of two (ages 4 and 7) I love the Outschool concept and how it enables teachers to personalize learning for all.

I love helping students dig deep into the past, learn the facts, and then develop their own opinions about critical events in history. Having fun while we learn is so important! I focus on keeping the classroom environment accepting of all students while delving into these important topics.

Students should bring paper and writing instruments to the class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
