Class experience

I am a National Geographic Certified Educator with global experience and a Master's Degree. I have lived and taught in 3 different countries. I'm excited about the opportunity to share my love of cultures and geography  with learners. I'm an enthusiastic teacher and plan my classes to include practical educational experiences. 

As a youth worker and project-based educator by training and experience, a lover of history and a voracious reader, this seemed like the perfect fit for me. I have over 10 years experience bringing complex (and frankly sometimes boring) topics to life for learners ages 11-18. I'm excited to explore our history together, through novels and historic facts, and to create a learning experience that is engaging and creates enthusiasm for the subject.

I have a Master’s of Arts in Youth Work and Community Development from DeMontfort University in Leicester, England. Courses covered included Theory and Practice of Youth Work (how to work effectively with teens and tweens), Theory and Practice of Community Development (how to empower community members to achieve their goals), Social Disaffection and Exclusion in Youth Work (how young people, and other marginalized groups, are excluded in society), Research Methods (ethical research standards) and Anti-Oppressive Practice (understanding the internalization of oppression at the personal, cultural and social levels in society). My degree also included practical field work in youth work and community development and a dissertation.

In addition to having my Master’s degree I have a personal interest in Geography and History and working with marginalized groups, including underserved youth in the UK, Rwandan refugees and the youth in public housing communities in the US. I have travelled extensively worldwide and lived in different cultures taking my Geographical understanding beyond the textbook. I have the research skills from my Master’s to do ethical and complete research to go beyond the “classic history” to find out the real story by using texts that include BIPOC authors. I have the experience and knowledge to handle questions and these subjects in an age appropriate, historically accurate and sensitive way.

Enslavement is discussed in the context of the colonization of America by Europeans. The basics of enslavement, the Middle Passage and the Transatlantic Slave Trade is covered during this class as well as the genocide and enslavement of indigenous peoples throughout the Americas. This will be taught in a way that focuses on decolonization approach to the curriculum and historical education.
