A few things I’m great at

My career as an educator and historian have provided me the opportunity to develop interests and expertise in several fields.

Education and Teaching

Expertise in secondary education requires a thorough understanding of the curriculum, instructional methods, and best practices for teaching and engaging students at this age level.

Digital Humanities

As a field that uses digital technologies to study, interpret, and display information about the human experience, it has the potential to revolutionize the way we understand and engage in the world around us. 

Doing History

Historical study allows us to better understand the world around us. Through critical thinking and analytical skills, the study of history allows us to understand the past, to learn from those who came before, adn to make informed decisions about the future.
