I have 30 years of teaching experience, which includes 25 years of teaching history and government to high school-age students.  I take special care to use historical evidence and facts when teaching history and especially marginalized groups and controversial topics.

As is often the case when learning about war, there may be sensitive content pertaining to the Civil War, human trafficking, World War I, and the Industrial Revolution. Be assured that I have extensive experiencing teaching about marginalized groups and controversial topics. I always let the facts and evidence be the guiding force behind history.
