I have an Associate of Art in Criminal Justice (CJ) and two years of upper level CJ coursework.  I have a Bachelor of Art in Maritime Studies with a focus in anthropology. Anthropology is the objective study of cultures and how societies live(d) and interact(ed). I also have a minor in anthropology focusing on Ancient civilizations (Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome) as well as more recent civilizations including the Mayans, Aztecs, and other Native American societies. I am certified to teach US grades 7-12 English Language Arts and have a Master's degree in Professional Education. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental guidance is suggested as we will be discussing crime, murder, and death. Though we approach topics from a straight forward and factual perspective, some learners may find certain topics emotional. If this happens, feelings will be validated and discussed in an age/developmentally appropriate way. We will interpret the information discussed, asked questions to understand why we feel the way we do and to understand others may feel differently. That does not mean one person's feelings are not valid. This helps to teach compassion, a very important tool for children and adults. Context and perspective will be provided as well, as it is important to understand the circumstance of the situation presented and to help us look for positives. This class is a safe space for discussion.
