History of the Cold War from 1945 to 1991 with a Cold War Expert.

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
On a basic level, students will be able to answer the question, "What was the Cold War?" They will be able to talk about how and why the Cold War developed, the key events, and the key leaders.
After offering several other successful classes on Outschool, I am now offering this class on the Cold War -- the topic I have perhaps the most intimate knowledge. From 2000 to 2009 I served in various leadership and executive roles with the organization preserving the historic home of President Ronald Reagan. In this role I met frequently with senior officials who served in the United States Government, including cabinet members of the President of the United States, during the Cold War. I maintained close professional and personal relationships with these individuals.

We live in a big and fascinating world and one of my goals with my classes is to help kids develop an interest and appreciation for the world around them and different cultures. My classes draw from my own experiences as a world traveler. I've visited and lived abroad in seventeen countries. I'm a lifelong student of history and I'm also the former deputy director of the historic home of President Ronald Reagan and I am a 2002 graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University with a bachelor of science degree in political science and history. I also have several years of experience in working with students as a teacher and mentor and look forward to having the opportunity to invest in the life of your learner.
