Class Experience

I have over twenty years of 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! 
Optional assignments will be posted in the Outschool Classroom each week.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Topics will include information about various historical events and subjects that can be sensitive in nature.  All assignments will be kept in an age-appropriate manner.  If inappropriate topics are brought up, they will be addressed quickly, and the discussion will be redirected.
