Class Experience

Students will learn about character and perspective and how both affect story.
I am a certified teacher with a doctorate of jurisprudence and a masters of educational psychology specializing in Creativity & Cognition. Creative teaching and learning is my passion. I am a state-certified educator for all social studies topics from elementary school through high school. I have taught several A.P. social studies classes. I have also served as a science and math specialist, and I have spent many years teaching secondary English.

I address all human history from a global perspective that respects all peoples' backgrounds. I have extensive and diverse experience in child advocacy, the family court system, and TBRI practices. In my spare time I run a foundation created to support veterans and educators in our community. I spent several years homeschooling my own children and working with a co-op. 

After 20 years as a certified educator, I am excited to lean into my own creativity and passion for our National Park System. It is my hope that I can inspire all learners to find wonder, peace, and hope through the lessons of our federal lands.
Students will read assigned pages each week.
Learners will need their own copies of the book (digital or print.)
Discussion participation
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
"The Glass Castle" was not written for an audience of children. It is an adult book with themes of sexuality, violence, and danger. It is important for parents to do necessary research for their own comfort in this selection. As the facilitator, I make no judgments, but I do not allow the use or repetition of four or offensive language.
