I'm a lifelong storyteller as a Washington newspaper journalist of 43 years and a licensed tour guide for 10 years. Growing up across George Washington’s Mount Vernon sparked my interest in colonial leaders. I teach history and civics classes that often center around our nation’s capital and its leaders. My other classes include the Eight Founding Fathers Who Created a Nation, Let’s Visit George Washington’s Mount Vernon and Learn the Secrets of George Washington’s Spy Rings.
