I am a Holocaust trained educator who has taught the Holocaust through literature and primary source documents to students in grades 7 through 10.  I have studied at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, as well as a 3-week seminar at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem with 36 other educators from around the world. Additionally I have hosted an educator workshop on Holocaust Education and collaborated with the creators of the Echoes and Reflections curriculum.
