I have over twenty years experience working with and teaching students.  I have a bachelor's degree in both History and Economics.  My master's degree is in Higher Education.  I also have a juris doctorate degree in Law.  Most importantly, I have a passion for teaching, history in particular!

Each week learners will receive three to five assignments that can be found in Google Classroom. The assignments include readings and an assignment. Assignments include fill-in-the-blank, writing open-response questions, drawing, and many others. Students will also complete three projects during the class. Each project will be centered around one of the topics we are learning about, and students will have a variety of choices to choose from that matches their interests.
