Class Experience

I studied political science at the University of North Dakota and have homeschooled my three children for nine years.  I taught social science courses at homeschool cooperatives at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels for three years, including a history course, 'United States History with American Girl'.  I currently teach dance classes and social science based courses on Outschool.
As a young girl I fell in love with the stories of the original American Girl historical characters - Kirsten, Samantha, and Molly.  As an adult I have found these characters and their stories as an excellent means of connecting the youngest of learners to history and reading.

As an educator with a focus on social sciences, I am continually educating myself through independent study, research, and online seminars and workshops.  I have extensive experience teaching American history and its harder moments to all age levels.
As a parent in a multi-racial family and a member of the adoption community, I have additional training and background in addressing issues of racism and traumatic loss.
Access to a printer for corresponding handouts (will be posted in the classroom one hour prior to meeting time) Pencil, paper for brainstorming what freedom looks like.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
American Girl characters connect learners to the past, and history can be filled with challenging topics and issues surrounding racism, discrimination, and inequality.  When these topics are present, they will be addressed in an age appropriate manner with historical fact and sensitivity.  We will discuss the darker moments of America's history, encouraging hearts focused on compassion and justice.  Please refer to the 'Teacher Expertise' section for my training and background that prove beneficial in addressing such matters.
