Description

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! 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Topics will include information about various historical events and subjects that can be sensitive in nature.  If inappropriate topics are brought up, they will be addressed quickly, and the discussion will be redirected.  Multiple perspectives are used throughout the course.
