"My goal is to create thought-provoking and meaningful lessons about history, and to find "teachable-moments" to guide students in making wise decisions in their own lives. I imagine myself as a compass, navigating my students to discover their own passion for life-long learning, and I do that by facilitating the exchange of ideas as we journey into the past together.”
