Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
I hold both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in History, providing me with a comprehensive understanding of historical events, cultures, and societal developments. Currently, I am actively engaged in teaching college-level history courses, where I apply my academic knowledge to foster critical thinking and historical analysis among students.

In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I am pursuing a doctoral degree, further enhancing my expertise in the field. As a doctoral candidate, I am immersed in advanced research, contributing to the ongoing discourse within the academic community.

My dual role as both an educator and a doctoral candidate allows me to bring a unique blend of theoretical knowledge and practical teaching experience to the classroom. I am dedicated to providing students with a rich and intellectually stimulating learning experience, drawing on my academic achievements and ongoing scholarly pursuits. If you have any questions about my background or approach to teaching, feel free to reach out for further clarification.
